“We are delighted to welcome Arlene to the company as our new Patron. As a company we have massive admiration for Arlene’s work and her tenacious approach and dedication to the arts.
This past year has hit us hard, as it has for the vast majority of arts organisations. We have worked tirelessly to ensure that we are still able to provide a dynamic, responsive and inclusive programme for our audiences and our community and to have Arlene’s support and patronage at this time is a massive boost for us.
Speaking of her appointment as Patron of the Company, Phillips has commented:
“I am delighted that I will be a patron of 2Faced Dance, which is the only professional dance company in Herefordshire, and one of the few Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisations in the region. They are a wonderful dance company, creating extraordinary work and I am very much looking forward to my involvement with them.”
