Dash is a founding member of Post Workers Theatre, an artist collective formed in 2018 with Nicholas Mortimer and Demitrios Kargotis. PWT study and update historic workers’ theatre and forms of creative resistance to address inequalities in the contemporary labour market and wider society. Through collective writing, performing, costume and stage production, the collective sets up opportunities for workers and communities to discuss and challenge their conditions and imagine them otherwise.
Since 2008 Dash has worked with Demitrios Kargotis in the design action group Dash N’ Dem. Their wide ranging participatory projects use co-creation and collective enquiry as a public forum to discuss social injustice and present alternatives to dominant narratives. DN’D exhibit and produce public commissions internationally, working across diverse media and modes of communication to discuss critical questions with communities in an open and accessible way.
