Parade – The Giant Wheel by Autin Dance Theatre

Location: Birmingham
Venue: Centenary Square

Ad & Bsl Icons

Presented as part of EveryBody Dancing at Festival 23

A large-scale travelling street performance featuring a 12-foot Giant Wheel driven by 5 circus and dance artists travelling high above the streets and inspired by the fracture between our individual identities and the cycles of our shared common humanity. Autin Dance Theatre uses their unique blend of contemporary storytelling, striking physicality and innovative large designs to transport audiences and communities along a carefully choreographed procession. 

The Giant Wheel carries the performers high above the streets, spins them around ferociously, turning their worlds upside down, at times giving them momentum and speed, and at others rocking them gently back and forth imitating the laborious and repetitive cycle of life.
