Dancer Rose Payne

Middlesbrough art gallery mima is playing host to a unique opportunity to see some of the area’s most talented dance and performance artists.

A collection of local and regional professional dancers will be performing in the atrium of mima.

The event – featuring a variety of artists who have performed around the globe - is the first of its kind with the aim of raising the profile of dance and developing new talent in the Tees Valley.

Boro manager Tony Mowbray will be a guest audience member at Thursday’s launch event alongside Stockton Arc director Annabel Turpin and Amanda Drago of the Arts Council North East, who will be on hand to offer information on current opportunities and funding for performing artists.

At the same time local artist Ian MacDonald will be signing copies of his book The Blast Furnace, and mima will be launching its Christmas shop.

Event information

Moving Frontiers at mima. Thursdays November 10 & 17. The event is free. Performances will take place between 5pm and 6.30pm with the café and gallery spaces open until 7pm.

Thursday November 10th also sees the launch of "A Few of My Favourite Things" mima's Christmas shop and local artist Ian MacDonald will be signing copies of his book The Blast Furnace
