Roaming Dance is a BIDF co-commission with Punch Records and Saathi House through Gallery37 North that premiered two new productions as part of BIDF’s live outdoor programme in Autumn 2021.
Hip Hop dance artists Joseph Toonga, Emma Houston and musician Bellatrix worked with communities in North West Birmingham in the summer, connecting with local people as an integral part of their creative process. Toonga was joined by Wolverhampton-based Breaker, Omar ‘Kidd Ronin’ Spence as a mentee – part of our artist development initiative.
Roaming Dance is one of a series of six commissions delivered in North West Birmingham, that collectively launched the three-year Gallery37 North (G37n) arts residency programme for young people led by Punch Records and Saathi House.
