It’s always sad to see a display close, but also a chance to put up an exciting, new exhibition! The next exhibition to take its place is British dance: Black routes. The display explores the experiences of Black British dancers, highlighting their achievements and looking at the origins of different dance forms. To mark the opening, we are hosting a panel discussion about influential Black dancers and choreographers in Liverpool, as well as the wider Black British dance scene. The event will take place at 2pm on 12 September and all are welcome. There will also be an opportunity to see the exhibition before it officially opens the next day. There is a great programme of dance events throughout Black History Month, including performances, talks, demonstrations and film screenings. So come along to the exhibition and events and be inspired by dance!
