Directed by Andy Brunskill, the piece is based around the theme of ‘home’ and what it means to each of us. It will be developed using ideas, inspirations and choreographic material contributed by 1000 individuals through workshops, open days, and uploading films online.

Moving through the streets and squares of Birmingham city centre, Home will engage thousands of people and present a diversity of dance styles. Taking place over a three-week period, the performances will begin quietly with a string of solos one after the other, evolving into group pieces and eventually becoming one large-scale spectacular finale performed on a landscape of connected doormats (Sunday 13 May). Individual doormats, chosen for their reference to home, will act as miniature stages on which community participants and professional dancers will perform.
