About Us

We aspire to provide a unique exchange – a rare and thought-provoking dance experience – that invites our audiences to connect, experience and explore.

De Quincey Co is a performance company at the intersection of dance, visual arts, theatre, music and performance. Led by Artistic Director Tess de Quincey, the company creates works of shifting scales for specific spaces – from a black box studio to a desert riverbed. Works currently in repertoire are listed on this site.

Created through a rich collaborative process of interdisciplinary and often cross-cultural exchange, ideas are researched and developed by De Quincey Co’s ensemble of dancers and a creative team that can include architects, philosophers, scientists, filmmakers, writers or visual artists.

The company’s new developmental program and auspicing agency The Weather Exchange presents the works of independent artists based in BodyWeather and related disciplines.
