This wonderful article focuses on the Balbir Singh Dance Company (founded in 1998 by Wolfson Honorary Fellow Balbir Singh) and the significant presence and impact it has had in the North East of England. Working with our Pain Academy and the Billingham International Folk Festival (BIFF), their mission is to be the UK’s leading intercultural company making dance theatre that tells stories to excite the senses and generate conversations.
