Eleanor Sikorski, Flora Wellesley Wesley and Stephanie McMann are the artistic directors of Nora. As Nora they curate and dance together, inviting artists to make work for them to perform.
From October 2016 to June 2017, Nora is undertaking a period of international research into creative processes, alternative dance ‘company’ models and the agency and responsibility that come with commissioning, curating and collaborating. This research will culminate in a series of ‘Nora Talks’ (May/June 2017) and a new series of artist commissions in 2018.
Previously a duo, Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley established Nora as a dancer-led project in 2015, commissioning three new duets for an evening length programme of work, ‘Nora Invites’, which has been touring nationally and internationally since 2016.
Nora is currently supported by Arts Council England, Sadler’s Wells and DanceEast.
