For the opening of BIDF on 2 June 2018, we have commissioned German choreographer Stephanie Thiersch to create a large scale dance performance with music written by celebrated German composer Brigitta Muntendorf. We invite Birmingham dancers and musicians of all styles, backgrounds and ages to take part and celebrate the diverse dance scene that Birmingham has to offer! 

In an artistic and political attempt to experience dance as a collective and democratic process, Stephanie Thiersch will create a joint choreography, integrating and connecting 50 or more professional and amateur dancers and 50 musicians.
