If you haven’t managed to catch any of the International Dance Festival Birmingham (IDFB) then Saturday 15 May is your last chance as the festival comes to an end with the Put Your Foot Down event.
The large-scale hip hop dance in St Martin’s Square, Bullring will see hundreds of people take part. The whole afternoon will see free performances, demonstrations and classes starting at midday and continuing throughout the afternoon until the mass dance at 6pm. Acclaimed French hip hop star Salah has choreographed a routine that has been taught to hundreds of people across the region over the last four weeks, and they will all come together to dance in the grand finale.
In the evening the closing performance of the Festival will take place, with Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker performing Cruel at Birmingham Hippodrome. This outstanding piece sees Colker’s athletic yet graceful dancers perform around an enormous revolving table, throw knives and get entangled in giant revolving mirrors, exploring the different forms that cruelty can take in a relationship.
