Muraldo D.C.

Hackney . Since 1995

How the company started

Back in 1995 when Caroline was working a a programme co-ordinator for a Hackney Community Centre, she decided to hold a weekend celebrating Caribbean culture as part of her programming, inviting established Caribbean performers to share their creativity such as the wonderful late Jackie Guy. This event was to include a number of pieces specially choreographed by Caroline herself. In turn she needed to give her group of dancers a name. They suggested that her surname was usual and would be a good name for the company and having been always appreciated her name she added D.C. to it, not wishing to follow the then common trend by merely adding ‘dance company’ and so Muraldo D.C. was born!
