A free mesmerising dance performance as part of the Birmingham International Dance Festival. 

As Birmingham prepares to host the Commonwealth Games, REMEMBRANCES asks how best to welcome Indigenous people as visitors to the city, the country and the land. In the time of #BlackLivesMatter, and in the face of colonial injustices, how can we offer a genuine space of welcome to First Nations people from Commonwealth countries?

REMEMBRANCES is a unique collaboration between contemporary theatre-makers, dance artists and poets from the Midlands and First Nations Canada.

Border Crossings is an intercultural theatre company, and has produced the ORIGINS Festival since 2009, offering a space for Indigenous people to share their cultures in Britain.

AVA DANCE COMPANY creates high-quality contemporary dance works, with a cast of female dancers and collaborators from a range of cultures and artistic disciplines.

b.solomon//ELECTRIC MOOSE is a First Nations contemporary dance artist of Anishinaabe and Irish heritage, from Ontario Canada. This production develops his piece RED FLAG.

Matthew James Weigel is an award-winning Dënësųłinë́ &Métis writer creating in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.

REMEMBRANCES will be performed outdoors, in a public garden. Children are free to move around as this is not a ticketed event. Buggy friendly and wheelchair accessible. The performance itself is highly visual and deals with important topics of cultural exchange and how we can welcome those who are different to us.
