2023 is building a legacy from Route 34: Embracing Cultures from Moving Souls Dance engagement as co-producer with North BirminghamAlliance.
This commission from the B2022 Festival commissioned an anthem We Rise from Ken Burton involving 17 Community choirs singing in Symphony Hall and across Birmingham in large scale outdoor venues including the Bull Ring. 11 Queen Costumes inspired by the Caribbean National Flowers were designed by Clary Salandy and led a procession of over 100 children, young people and adults from ACE dance and music community groups in lively dance processions across these events.
