Black Dance in Britain 1930’s-1990’s Moments…

The Drum, 144 Potters Lane, Aston Birmingham B6 4UU // T: 0121 333 2400

This exhibition features important moments in the history of Black dance in Britain over the last sixty years. The exhibition features images of organisations and choreographers who through dance have enganged in a rich cross cultural dialogue, sharing styles of movement, experience and innovations. The resulting fusion of dance styles not only began to define dance by performers of African Caribbean descent living in Britain, but it also added a new dimension to British dance.

The exhibition included images from photographers such as Dee Conway, Chris Nash and Terry Cryer and includes images of regionally based artists Donald Edwards and Gail Parmel.

Mon 1 Dec – Fri 20 Jan, 10am – 6pm, Mon – Fri Admission Free
