Following its success in the very first IDFB back in 2008, we welcome the return of youth dance extravaganza, International Raw Energy.
IDFB 2012 in partnership with Sampad South Asian arts has created two new youth companies made up of young dancers from across the West Midlands. These groups are developing new pieces to be performed in the grand surroundings of Birmingham’s Town Hall:
- A contemporary company working with Anh Ngoc Nguyen (previouslydancer/choreographer with Wayne McGregor/Random Dance)
- With Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA) — A Bollywood company working with Delhi-based Sadhya Dance Company.
The evening’s programme will also include exciting performances of existing work by some of the best youth dance companies in the region, including 2Faced Youth Dance and ACE Youth — a real chance to see the next generation of dance talent!
Suggested age guidance: suitable for all ages
Running time: approx 1 hour
Don’t miss the last performance of IDFB 2012’s spectacular free outdoor event Wings of Desire which takes place after International Raw Energy in Victoria Square, Birmingham at 9.30pm!
