Clare Lewis, Executive Director of DanceXchange said on behalf of Dance Hub Birmingham:
“Dance Hub Birmingham partners are delighted to have commissioned this fabulous line-up of dance for Birmingham Weekender in Digbeth, raising the profile of dance as a vital artform for the city region, and promoting Birmingham as a vibrant dance city.”
Steve Ball, Director of Culture Central said:
“Birmingham is a city known for its fantastic dance sector and we are thrilled to have been able to include these new works in the Birmingham Weekender in Digbeth programme, an opportunity to get a real sense of the breadth of dance talent in the region in the most surprising locations.
“Our whole free programme looks fantastic, a real celebration of Birmingham’s cultural organisations, venues, artists and performers. What an opportunity too to spend some time in Birmingham’s thriving contemporary art scene and perhaps try out spaces, venues, exhibitions and performances that you’ve not experienced before.
“It’s a packed programme, I urge everyone to get online or pick up a brochure and to start planning their Weekender, I shall see you there!”
