Birmingham International Dance Festival (BIDF 2022), the largest dance festival in the UK, returned this summer to present the very best of international dance and inspiring choreography from 17 June to 3 July. Birmingham’s signature festival has the city’s citizens firmly at its heart, celebrating diversity and togetherness.
Shaped and delivered by XTRAX and FABRIC (Dance4 & DanceXchange together) as part of BIDF 2022, the Outdoor Dance Showcase (22-25 June) presented an exciting programme celebrating UK-based dance artists who bring life and joy to outdoor places. It provided a platform for national and international promoters to connect and build meaningful relationships with a curated selection of outdoor dance artists looking to tour their work beyond borders.
With live performances, pitching sessions, informal networking opportunities and panel discussions, the Outdoor Dance Showcase created spaces to foster fruitful international collaboration.
