Announcing The Big Idea! posted 04 Jul 2017

Birmingham Weekender and International Dance Festival Birmingham (IDFB) are delighted to announce The Big Idea 2017, featuring two new dance productions that will take to the streets at Birmingham Weekender 22-24 Sept 2017.

The Big Idea creates work in outdoor places and unusual spaces that will excite, enthral and enliven the city, building and reaching diverse audiences.

The Rosie Kay Dance Company’s Modern Warrior is a stunning new outdoor action piece, where audience members pick a side and join either the Mods or the Trads as Kung Fu meets dance. As two opposing groups move across the city and meet in an epic stand-off, audiences have the chance to join in, be trained, and become part of the action or simply watch the tale unfold.

MOON by 2Faced Dance Company is a spectacular outdoor dance and circus production for families. Follow Jack as he meets The Moon and together they embark on an amazing adventure; what secrets and surprises will they discover in their quest? Watch Jack’s world come to life with giant quilts, an aerial hoop, breath-taking dance and a whole host of mess and mayhem.

Describing The Big Idea, Festival Directors Graham Callister and Piali Ray commented: “We are delighted that these new commissions will premiere at Birmingham Weekender, before being further developed for IDFB 2018, cementing the West Midlands reputation for creating extraordinary outdoor dance.”
