Douglas Thorpe


Douglas began his career with Phoenix Dance Theatre, who he danced with for over twenty years before developing his own choreography. Under the banner of Mad Dogs Dance Theatre, Douglas’s work has developed an identity for being extremely explosive, powerful, physical dance theatre. Douglas has made work for ACE Dance & Music, Phoenix Dance Theatre, Staatstheater Tanz, Braunschweig in Germany and the 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Phoenix Dance Theatre welcomed Douglas in Spring 2013 back to create a new work for the company tour.
