We have reached over 350,000 people across the world with widely acclaimed major tours in the UK, Europe, Australia and North America, which have led to numerous awards and nominations including Olivier, Evening Standard, TMA, Herald Angel and Dora awards.
Dash Arts' productions include the award-winning Indian A Midsummer Night’s Dream which played sell out seasons with the RSC in Stratford and at London’s Roundhouse before touring world-wide and the double Olivier-award winning Babel which was a major success at London’s Sadler’s Wells and across the world.
