Dance Under Construction
Dance Under Construction is a series of evenings of dance performance at The Drum in Birmingham. The series was developed to give artists working with dance of the African Diaspora an opportunity to stage new work or remount pieces in preparation for touring. The events are open to the public and give a sneak preview of the artists' upcoming shows.
The audience has an opportunity to give feedback to the artists after each performance.
Each event features two short works, including African, Caribbean, Jazz and Street Dance. In its inaugural season in Spring 2008 Dance Under Construction included performances from Imani Jendai (Manchester), Keisha Grant (Birmingham), RJC Dance (Leeds), Sean Graham, Vicki Igbokwe and Adesola Akinleye (London).
ADAD is currently seeking new partners to support the further development of Dance Under Construction.
