Producer, Dramaturg & Consultant


I am an experienced theatre, dance and project producer, with particular experience working on Edinburgh’s Festivals, national and international touring theatre and cross artform collaborations.  I am passionate about projects that excite and engage.

Currently working for the Festival Fringe Society in Edinburgh, covering maternity leave for the Head of Participant Services, our team leads the Fringe Central programme including arts industry services, venue liaison and support and performing company support.

‘Efficient but enthusiastic and bursting with knowledge, you can’t help thinking that if you were that company looking for a new connection, then Dani Rae would be the person to help you find it.’
