FABRIC is pleased to announce EveryBody Dancing, a fresh and exciting programme of amazing dance on Sunday 30 July in Centenary Square, presented as part of Birmingham Festival 23 the 10 day festival showcasing the City’s rich cultural offer, echoing the city-centre experience of last year’s Commonwealth Games.

The highlight of FABRIC’s programme will be a specially commissioned new work by ZoieLogic Dance Theatre co-created with Critical Mass Dance Collective (CMDC), the inclusive dance company featuring an integrated cast with people identifying as D/deaf, Disabled and non-disabled. Directed by Zoie Golding and supported by Dance Development Leaders Group, the new show is funded by United by 22, whose mission is to maintain the momentum of the Commonwealth Games across the whole of the West Midlands.
Members of the CMDC were previously seen dancing their way through key moments of the Birmingham 2022 Festival and the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games. Zoie is excited to build upon these unforgettable experiences in this year’s show.
Our plan is to be even more ambitious and bring Birmingham to life again with this inspirational, inclusive dance collective.
Zoie Golding MBE, Artistic Director ZoieLogic Dance Theatre
