The Voyage

PAST EVENT - 21-24 June 2012, 10.00pm, Victoria Square

An enormous ship sails into the centre of Victoria Square, Birmingham, docking itself beside the city’s Town Hall. High above the people who gather to look at this marvel, dancers and aerialists appear in the ship’s rigging – The Voyage begins at this Free outdoor performance spectacle.

Watch the action unfold onboard the ship and be caught up in the atmosphere on the ground, where seagulls swoop and travellers prepare to embark on their journey. The ship sets sail, the Town Hall is transformed by spectacular projected imagery and the city’s skyline becomes a dream of undiscovered worlds.

This outdoor multimedia spectacle is created by Motionhouse, one of the UK’s foremost dance theatre companies, and world-renowned physical theatre company Legs On The Wall, from Australia. Produced by Birmingham Hippodrome, and with original film projections from award winning Logela Multimedia, it’s a free event for the whole family.

The Voyage is produced by Birmingham Hippodrome and supported by Dancing for the Games.


Partners: Birmingham Hippodrome, Motionhouse, Legs On The Wall, Performances Birmingham, Logela Multimedia.

Funders: Legacy Trust UK, Arts Council England, Advantage West Midlands, Dancing for the Games and Warwick Arts Centre.
