With the support of Dance Hub, Midlands Made is a new initiative to showcase innovative, regional work that pushes the boundaries of contemporary choreographic practice.

We are looking for 8-15min long performances by professional artists who create the majority of their work in the Midlands. We are particularly interested in work that is responsive or adaptable to our outdoor stage at Victoria Square or its surroundings. Work that is reflective of one or more of the festival’s themes: celebrating the diversity of identities and bodies, working with digital art, mindfulness and challenging traditions, as well as interdisciplinary works and collaborations, are welcome.

There will be a contribution to the performance fee.
