CLOD ENSEMBLE collaborates with creative freelancers, educators and young people, upholding movement, music and visual languages as vital ways of knowing, learning, and communicating.

Our work crosses disciplines and takes inspiration from a wide variety of sectors.

  • We’re always open to new partnerships, so whether you’re an academic, a venue, a school or have an idea for how we could work together, please get in touch
  • To find out what opportunities we have for artists, visit our Whats on page or sign up to our mailing list.
  • If you’re interested in our work in arts-based healthcare education, please visit Performing Medicine


Raising money is part of the creative process. We are an independent registered charity with a variety of income streams. If you like what we do and would like to be part of this creative collaboration, you could for example:

  • Support a young composer: £25 would pay for 1 state school student to have a masterclass with a professional musician. £175 would pay for them to complete the entire course of 8 masterclasses with professional musicians. Learn more about our Ear Opener programme.



  • Support an early-career artist: £45 would pay for 1 artist to have a free place at one of our Reboot professional development workshops



  • Support a creative team to develop a new idea: £1,575 would pay for 3 artists to rehearse and develop a new show with the ensemble for a week. Get in touch to meet the team and have a chat about work that’s in development and what you would like to support.


Donations of any amount will enable us to continue to collaborate in new and different ways with creative freelancers, educators and young people, finding new ways to create work together and support each other from afar. Thank you to everyone who currently contributes to our work.
