Centrala is quickly becoming one of the premiere venues in Birmingham, standing shoulder to shoulder with some of Birmingham’s most prestigious art galleries due to their radical art programming the best in Eastern and Central European art. On Saturday 17 Feb, Centrala turns their attention to dance with a day packed full of events to blow the frosty cobwebs away. Starting at 10.30am with Ground Control by Anca Benera and Arnold Estefan. As part of their main art programme, this exhibition encourages us to recognise maps as constructions shaped by the past and the atrocities of colonisation. At 1pm, an art and movement workshop will take place in Centrala’s Art Loft with artist Constantin Malmoire and performance artist Keity Pook. Linear Synthesis ponders the fusion of performance-art, movement and visual art to create new art forms and invites participants to draw as they dance in this three hour (child-friendly) workshop. Finally, night moves with heart and soul come in the shape of the Let’s Dance Hula Hoop Disco. Raising money for refugee camps in Greece in partnership with Hoops for Humanity, Hula Hoop disco offers a three hour hula hooping extravaganza of Northern Soul, Motown, Psychedelic tunes, Afrobeat, Nigerian funk train, and more – including a licensed bar to lubricate those moves.
