Me and the rest of the Break Mission team have put together a piece of work for the theatre stage and we are showing part of what we have put together on February 25th at The Old Rep Theatre during their New Works Night. The show kicks off at 7pm and you can purchase tickets online here—-> PURCHASE TICKETS FOR OUR FIRST SHOW OF THE YEAR!!

Growing from the success of the theatre-focused New Work Nights in our Autumn season – and in response to audience and artist demand – February sees our first New Work Nights: Dance event at The Old Rep.

West Midlands choreographers and companies bring original performances to the stage, ranging from extracts of new productions ready to tour, to work in its early stages of development from some of the most exciting young dance talents in the region.

This first event will celebrate the diversity of dance forms in our city, including new solo work, ‘Infinite Womanhood’, from Birmingham-based artist Laura Vanhulle, and Vanhulle Dance Theatre. Laura has previously worked with Motionhouse, Ace Dance and music, Keneish  Dance Theatre and  Aakash.

Other performers include Jigsaw Collective, Outspoken Dance and Break Mission lead artists David ‘Footloose’ Russell and Michael ‘Silence’ Glasgow.
