W&T in partnership with Moseley Road Baths will produce an ambitious, site-specific community production that examines women’s relationship with swimming and water; presenting diverse stories of women in Balsall Health and celebrating the area’s historic swimming baths, performed on the 13th & 14th April 2019.
Developed from research, Into The Water will celebrate different cultures reflecting the diversity of Balsall Heath; with tales of childhood swimming in far-away countries alongside stories of those for whom Moseley Road Baths have been a staple part of their routine for decades. The piece will engage local audiences and make imaginative use of space inside the historic Baths, a cultural hub of the neighbourhood.
