1992 – 2020

Ascending Fields was set in Fort Dunlop, an empty tyre depot off the M6, with a cast of eighty dancers and musicians, a mix of local performers and professionals.

Collaboration with visual artist Siobhan Davies. Live music composed by Simon Limbrick.

Commissioned and co-produced by Birmingham City Council and Sounds Like Birmingham

“The cast of amateurs and professionals show a skill and grace which fires a splendid unity. It was one of the most spiritual things I have ever seen in this city.”
