Fabric Dance Logo

Autin Dance Theatre use their unique blend of contemporary storytelling, striking physicality and innovative large designs to transport audiences and communities along a carefully choreographed procession. 

The Giant Wheel carries the performers high above the streets, spins them around ferociously, turning their worlds upside down, at times giving them momentum and speed, and at others rocking them gently back and forth imitating the laborious and repetitive cycle of life. 

Autin Dance Theatre presents ‘Parade – The Giant Wheel’ with the support of Without Walls Blueprint investment, Midlands Arts Centre – MAC, 101 Outdoor Arts, Out There Arts, Black Country Dance Hub and the National Lottery Community Fund.
