DanceXchange (DX) and Punch Records are excited to offer a series of bespoke micro commissions specifically for Midlands-based Hip Hop dance artists as part of Gallery 37 North (G37n), and  Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF) taking place 17 June – 3 July 2022.

We are inviting dance artists working within Hip Hop styles to submit an innovative concept for this new commission that will feature as part of both the BIDF 2022 and Gallery 37 North programmes. The projects must be original work, dance focused and be designed specifically for outdoor spaces. Two concepts will be selected and the commissions will premiere as part of BIDF in June – July 2022.

Full details and how to apply can be found here

The Midlands Made & G37n opportunity builds on the success of our previous co-commissions in 2021, where artists Joseph Toonga and Emma Houston & Bellatrix received commissions to premiere new Hip Hop works engaging with communities in North West Birmingham.
