Billy Read Chris Fonseca Longwill School

In January,  young people from  Longwill primary School Birmingham participated in a dance residency by Billy Read and Chris Fonseca. The week kicked off with a performance by Chris Fonseca,  Billy Read and Nau Masuda on Taiko Drums.  Together they told the “Sign Criminal” story. Together they encourage the children to respond to ideas in Sign Criminal and use dance and theatre to tell their own story.  The new work  was presented at Birmingham Hippodrome as part of a unique project celebrating Deaf stories in Birmingham & launching Theatre Ad Infinitum “The Extraordinary Wall of Silence”.

The activity in the school is part of the development of “We are the Revolution” a trilogy of new dance work including, “Sign Criminal” and “Forbidden identity” funded by Birmingham Dance Hub
