Greetings and welcome to criticaldance

I have combined your posts into one post to avoid unnecessary posts. It might also help if you clarified your question so that people have a bit of better idea what information you need.

I would also suggest that you check out the Dance Umbrella website. This year's performances are finished, but the website has plenty of information.

Thnks for the clarification, Francesca. For the record, La Ribot is a solo artist rather than a company, but I doubt very much whether the Mark Morris or Sue Davies companies offer any of the services you mention. Costumes and designs are work specific and thus there would be little opportunity for lending out.

You may be on better ground with ballet companies. I know the Royal Ballet "Don Q" production from 3 years ago (or so) used Australian Ballet sets and costumes and this sort of activity is not unusual with such a common rep in the ballet world.

I agree, as far as i'm aware most modern companies do not have a company costume/set/lighting designer, but hire them in depending on certain factors such as who choreographer might like. despite this, some designers do become "associated" with a company and are part of the creative team for almost every work.
