Highflyers dancers are pictured below dancing for film as part of the Beyond Borders 2021 project. The images taken by Hank and Margot capture the enjoyment and creativity of our dancers during this rainy day film shoot.
Beyond Borders is an ambitious region-wide participation Dance Development Leaders Group (DDLG) project bringing together dance artists, aspiring young leaders, young people, digital artists and a variety of specialists to collaborate and produce an original work in response to #OnewithNature.
This theme was chosen by over 100 young people through a pilot #DanceConnect 2020. Beyond Borders 2021 is focusing on a creative enquiry approach to dance and digital collaboration and the unique experiences and perspectives of young people as lockdown restrictions begin to ease. The work will be premiered at Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF) 2021.
