Collaborating since April 2017, Near Miss Company is a trio consisting of sound artist and musician Lee Allaston, director and choreographer Shannon Coote, and producer/performer Louisa Robey. They also work with local artists who collaborate with the company and often perform in their works.

As a company, they are interested in exploring notions of risk and the tensions this can create for both performer and audience. Exploring these avenues choreographically as well as the relationship between improvised movement and sound has also illuminated narratives of women adopting strong positions and roles, whilst also displacing stereotypes of femininity within dance and performance.
