The Voyage is a collaborative production between Sydney group 'Legs on the Wall' and a troupe of Birmingham artists.

It tells the story of a group of people who take a passenger liner to a new country in search of a new life.

Legs on the Wall will be joined by dancers, a choir and a brass band for an epic performance.

A 45-meter passenger ship is being constructed in order to serve as the stage, and it will feature visual projections designed in Spain.
