What are Midlands Made Minute commissions ?
As part of BIDF Online Edition 2021, DX awarded six Midlands-based artists & collectives a commission to produce a new Screendance Short of one minute in length. The artists received bespoke mentoring from renowned Screendance Production Company The Motion Dance Collective, in addition to one-to-one sessions with the artistic team at DanceXchange. Each film explored themes of identity, lived experience and the future – all set within the region. From Jazz to Hip Hop, to Punk styles – the Screendance Shorts celebrate the breadth of creative dance talent in the Midlands.
