ACE Erasmus Exchange Performance – Save the Date!

ACE Youth are set to perform at a sharing at ACE Space on the 1st June 2019 as part of an international exchange with Dutch group Untold. On the evening, we will see performances from ACE Youth, Untold, Fused and two dance pieces choreographed by BCP choreographers Nii and Steady.

In October 2018, ACE Youth travelled to Amsterdam to take part in an Exchange with Untold which was funded by Erasmus+ , a programme that allows 13-30 year olds the opportunity to take part in youth exchanges.

Throughout the week both ACE Youth and Untold were based in Bijlmer Park Theatre which is located in a diverse community and participated in workshops in Afro Beats, Azonto, Afro-Fusion, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Drama.

The first visit allowed the young people to explore the subject of ‘Migration’ using their own experiences and stories to inform each other about their identity. Later that week, they visited a set of exhibitions at ‘Body Worlds – Amsterdam’ which took them on a fascinating journey through the human anatomy featuring real plastinated human bodies on display. They spent time reading all the interesting facts and taking part in the practical elements of the exhibition.

The second visit takes place between 26th May and 2nd June 2019, when ‘Untold’ will be travelling to Birmingham to spend the week in ACE dance and music’s building, based in the heart of Digbeth’s creative quarter. Our ‘BCP – Navigate’ choreographers, Nii and Steady, will each create a piece on the young people taking part in the exchange and it will be shown at the showcase on Saturday 1 June 2019 at 7.00pm. Alongside the collaborative pieces, there will be performances from ACE Youth, Untold and ACE’s very own ‘Fused’.
