On Display

Year of Production


A series of specially commissioned dance pieces set in high street shops, On Display literally brought Birmingham shop windows to life for the launch of the first International Dance Festival Birmingham.

The performance moves from shop windows to the street, with five dancers shifting roles between mannequin and dressers-in-action, and the drama spills over into fashion-victim taxis and a bubbly sequence at the nearby Bath Store.

From 28 April to 4 May there were 20 performances, attracting over 2,300 onlookers.
