Birmingham 2022 Festival presents

A Creative City Project generously funded by Birmingham City Council

Tuesday 12 July – Saturday 16 July 2022
3pm, 4.30pm, 6pm and 7.30pm
Moseley Road Baths

BOSA (meaning barefoot in Croatian) is Notnow Collective’s new adventure. Join us for an immersive experience in the grandiose and atmospheric Moseley Road Baths where we will take you on a spatial audio sound journey.

The BOSA project gathered together four Balkan women artists, three commissioned young creatives and many of the local community who are making their home in Birmingham. With each other, we explored stories and rituals of moving home and settling into a new community.

The performance will be presented using the latest immersive spatial audio technology, giving you the experience of being present with the characters in the story. Notnow Collective have teamed up with Kinicho, who specialise in developing new technologies for spatial audio and bringing to life creative audio experiences in arts and commercial activations. For BOSA, Kinicho will be using their revolutionary Sonic Reality Engine to provide an immersive experience through headphones that track head movements, taking the listener into the world of the story.

Tickets for this event are Pay-What-You-Can – we suggest a minimum donation of £5. All proceeds from the sale of tickets will be donated to Moseley Road Baths to help support the long-term future of this historic building.

Book tickets in advance by using the button above. Tickets will also be available on the door (cash only).

The performance experience will last 40 minutes and is suitable for ages 12+

BOSA is a creative city project, a part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, and generously funded by Birmingham City Council and Arts Council England.
