DanceXchange announces new performance season for 2017

DanceXchange is pleased to announce our new January to June 2017 season in The Patrick Centre, Birmingham Hippodrome.

The new season is one of our most ambitious, with productions that include subversive theatrical twists on familiar stories; acrobatic, circus-inspired dance; a fusion of modern and classical ballet; and a striking synthesis of contemporary and African styles, plus an international flavour from two companies on their first tours to the UK.
