An opening, epic, city-wide moment, Coventry Moves, heralds the start of our year as UK City of Culture on Saturday 15 May.
An audacious day full of extraordinary surprises, it will be experienced in the city and around the UK from home. Coventry Moves
will provide a playful and engaging introduction to Coventry, its stories and its people.
Despite the challenges of planning a way to mark this monumental moment in a global pandemic, the day-long event will tell the story of Coventry’s pioneering identity; how its history, youthfulness and resilience continues to shape its future and give voice to the many people that call the city their home.
The creative team behind Coventry Moves
are Justine Themen, Director; Ruby Pugh, Designer; Mydd Pharo, Wildworks, Visual Dramaturg; Jenni Jackson, Movement Director; Benjamin Burrell, Music Director; Dan Jones and Composer (Collective Moment). The team also includes five Creative Associates - Hannah Beck, Sebbie Mudhai, Marius Mates, Sibongile Mkoba and Hazel Mcintosh – who were originally involved in the Young Creatives Programme and will be mentored throughout the delivery process.
