The launch of the MDA marked a turning point in the future of movement directors.  We are working on joint initiatives with Equity to achieve full recognition by the union. 


Together Equity and MDA have created a survey of the field of movement direction in what marks the beginning of co-operation between our organisations.

MDA's Ayse Tashkiran new book, Movement Directors in Contemporary Theatre: Conversations on Craft was published in July 2020.  This is the first publication of its kind, dedicated to the craft of movement direction.  The book charts a series of interviews with leading theatre practitioners and future voices.  MDA Members benefit from a discount on purchases from Bloomsbury.
