Birmingham Dance Network in association with Vivid Live


21 May – 9 June 2018

During May and June, Birmingham Dance Network in collaboration with Vivid Live will be in residence with their ChoreoMatch project, creating a space for dancers, choreographers and artists to experiment with an untested idea and meet new collaborators. This year, as part of Birmingham International Dance Festival 2018, the ChoreoMatch participants will present at Introducing… devised in situ at Vivid Projects for the first time, utilising the unique gallery space for sited work and digital installations. Described by audiences as  “A knockout showcase – an absolute pleasure” Introducing… is Birmingham’s only platform of new dance designed specifically for regional artists to test out brand new ideas on audiences who give instant feedback.
