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.

Who is Spectra?

Spectra creates fierce and joyful performance through authentic collaboration. They seek to cultivate a world that celebrates brains that work in different ways. Their neurodiverse company produces interactive adventures that engage all of our audience’s senses.

We have worked with Ty for seven years and are absolutely thrilled to have been able to support him to secure and create this commission from BIDF.
