The Migrant Festival is a short four day festival hosted by Ikon Gallery to showcase visual art, film, music and performance.
LYNNEBEC were approached by Ikon Gallery to collaborate with Designer Osman Yousefzada to perform in a fashion parade through the city centre, featuring his spring/summer collection. LYNNEBEC worked alongside the designer and curatorial team to create a short section of choreography to pause the catwalk throughout different parts of the city.
This also featured mask work from Laurie Ramsell who created a large head piece inspired by the Hew Locke Exhibition that led the line of performers through the streets of Birmingham. The procession began at the bottom of the Rotunda and continued along New Street to Centenary Way, Centenary Square, and finally along Broad Street to Ikon.
This was created and performed in June 2019.
