Udifydance Company is an all male contemporary dance company founded in 2008 by Christopher
Reynolds and Chay Burrows. Their first duet, ‘PLeX’ was performed across West Sussex,
Hampshire and London before collaborating with musician George Art Baker, a relationship
that has since seen the two work together on Within Space (2009), Out From Out Where
(2010) and And When We Move...(2012).
Since 2008, Artistic Director, Christopher Reynolds has created 7 Original Works
for the company and continues to explore and define his understandings as a choreographer.
‘to create an influential artistic voice and place within the dance sector that develops
the choreographic vision and focus of the Artistic Director; shown through performative
work and educational means.’
In 2011 Udify began working on a research and development project throughout the
year to explore what is Udify? In July of 2011 Udify became Resident Company of The
University of Winchester where the company is now based administratively.
Udify received support from Brighton Dome as well as mentoring in 2011 from the renowned
choreographer Hofesh Shechter, whose Company is Resident at the Brighton Dome
At the end of 2011, Christopher Reynolds became Artistic Director of Udifydance Company
and began the development of the current tour “And When We Move…”. The tour consists
of two new works by an all male cast touring across the South East, South West and
London in Spring 2012.
Udify produces dance works that express a heightened representation of space, energy,
texture and pattern that are mesmerising to watch and has a clear visual aesthetic.
Their style is a collection of exciting floor work infused with the creation of a
dynamic vocabulary blended with an expansive physicality; movement with dynamic shifts
and clear rhythms underlined with a quirky, intelligent and human quality.
The Company became associates of The Point Eastleigh in 2009, where they created
the critically acclaimed All For A Few before performing as part of Resolution! 10
at The Place, London.
In 2010, Udifydance Company toured 4 Men:Move across the South East and South West
of England establishing an audience and fantastic feedback to the works.
