Feel the transformative power of connection
Strap yourselves in for the ride of a lifetime
Shining a light on a local community
Where’s your head at?
Could you be a detective?
Reigniting dance in shared spaces
When did you last face your fears?
All male youth dance platform
Are you aware of what grabs your attention?
Are you worthy to enter?
What do you hide about yourself?
Nothing is ever what it seems
Can you escape?
Going overboard is not an option
Celebrating a city of makers
Bringing dance to the workplace
What is the state of your empire?

The ZoieLogic Team
We invite you to join us in Solara’s universe to feel the transformative power of connection, community and dancing together.
Solara not only brings life, strength and protection to the communities who look up to her, but also provides energy for them to harness. Day after day, Solara arrives and the work begins. It has been like this for as long as anyone can remember, with Solara and the communities she powers relying on each other all living in harmony; all dancing to the same tune. When one day an unusual event occurs, it disrupts the universe they all know.
Solara will be performed by Critical Mass Dance Collective (CMDC), the inclusive dance company featuring an integrated cast with people identifying as D/deaf, Disabled and non-disabled.
Members of the CMDC were previously seen dancing their way through key moments of the Birmingham 2022 Festival and the Opening Ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.
Solara by ZoieLogic Dance Theatre is co-created with Critical Mass Dance Collective, presented as part of Birmingham Festival 23. Commissioned by FABRIC, supported by Dance Leaders Group, and funded by United by 22.

We chat with Zoie about the challenges of directing inclusive, co-created dance at scale; the joys of working with Critical Mass Dance Collective for a second time; and why mass co-creation is a uniquely rewarding experience for all involved.
