Win a pair of tickets to International Dance Festival Birmingham 2012
Thursday 08 March 2012
The legendary ballerina Sylvie Guillem returns to the UK, following the sell-out success of her London seasons, to perform at the magnificent Birmingham Hippodrome for the very first time.
A highlight of the Festival, Guillem is joined by dancer/choreographer Russell Maliphant in a mixed programme featuring Push, a duet combining the abilities of this extraordinary partnership set to an original score by Andy Cowton, and Solo performed by Guillem to the music of Carlos Montoya. The evening is completed by Maliphant’s signature solo Shift, and the powerful, driving solo Two performed by Guillem.
We are offering one lucky reader and a friend the chance to see this fantastic show, on either Friday 11 May or Saturday 12 May at Birmingham Hippodrome. And to make a special night of it, we’re including a complimentary three-course pre-theatre dinner and house wine for two at Birmingham Hippodrome’s stylish Circle Restaurant, located just a short walk from your seats, along with bed and breakfast in the centrally located Crowne Plaza Birmingham City Centre.
This weekend also features the Finale of Home - the festival’s bold, inventive new production animating public spaces across Birmingham city centre. Directed by Andy Brunskill, this free outdoor production is based around the theme of ‘home’ and what it means to each of us. It is being developed using ideas, inspirations and choreographic material contributed by 1000 individuals. The production is taking place every day from the start of the festival (23 April) eventually becoming one large-scale spectacular finale in the city centre on Sunday 13 May. So, why not make a weekend of it at International Dance Festival Birmingham 2012?
