DanceXchange and the Centre for Brexit Studies are teaming up to discover the Brexit opinions of Britain’s second city and giving its people the chance to express their feelings in a slightly different way.
Art 50/50, is a Political Installation experience filled with dance and art pieces which will be inspired by the voices of Birmingham on Brexit.
During a series of meetings to last throughout the first week of May, DanceXchange along with lead artist Gary Clarke, local dance and multi-disciplinary artists and Birmingham City University’s Centre for Brexit Studies will collect the Brexit views of the people of Birmingham, with the aim of producing a series of movement and performance pieces inspired by their voices on Brexit.
Culminating in a political installation experience filled with dance and art performances including an exhibition space to include the research stages. There will also be a live Brexit debate and sharing of the research gathered at Birmingham International Dance Festival on 23rd June 2018 at The Quantum Exhibition Space.
This is your chance to get involved, to share your views on Brexit, engage in lively discussion and express yourself through your own art and movement. You can be as involved as you want and are indeed actively encouraged to present your views for recording and to take the opportunity to add your voice to Brexit in Motion!
