The Voyage

21 Jun 2012 - 24 Jun 2012 from 10.00pm
Free outdoor performance spectacle in Birmingham's Victoria Square.

An enormous ship sails into the centre of Victoria Square, Birmingham, docking itself beside the city’s Town Hall. High above the people who gather to look at this marvel, dancers and aerialists appear in the ship’s rigging – the voyage begins.

Professional dancers and aerialists join forces with a huge amateur choir, live musicians and more than 140 community performers to transform the Square and tell the story. Watch the action unfold onboard the ship and be caught up in the atmosphere on the ground, where seagulls swoop and travellers prepare to embark on their journey. The ship sets sail, the Town Hall is transformed by spectacular projected imagery and the city’s skyline becomes a dream of undiscovered worlds.

This outdoor multimedia spectacle is created by Motionhouse, one of the UK’s foremost dance theatre companies, and world-renowned physical theatre company Legs On The Wall, from Australia. Produced by Birmingham Hippodrome, and with original film projections from award winning Logela Multimedia, it’s a free event
