CommonTalk is a specially curated discussion panel series as part of Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF). Taking inspiration from the Commonwealth Games hosted in the city of Birmingham, there will be two panels featuring dance artists hailing from the UK and Commonwealth countries. Conversations will be open and honest and centre around what influence the UK’s colonialist history has had on their identity, practice, and artistry.
Moderated by Dr. Funmi Adewole-Elliot, the panel includes artists from around the world including, Gregory Maqoma (South Africa), Dr. Urmimala Sarkar Munsi (India), Thomas E.S. Kelly (Australia) and Olivia C. Davies (Canada).
CommonTalk Digital will be screened after the CommonTalk Live event at 4pm
