One evening. Three unforgettable award-winning shows from across Europe.
Birmingham’s BE FESTIVAL brings together the most daring and delightful theatre from across Europe. This triple bill of festival favourites features three 30 minute shows that can inspire people of all nationalities. It’s a unique opportunity to see brand new theatre that has never toured the UK before, so BE part of it! Performed by companies from Granada, Brussels and Barcelona, the shows picked up an array of awards at the summer festival, including 1st Prize, Best Mise en Scene and the Audience Prize. The line-up is as follows:
L’Absent by La Compagnie du Geste qui Sauve (Belgium) A moving story, beautifully told through the company’s unique approach to mime. A woman struggles with solitude and with the all-too-familiar objects that surround her. A non-verbal piece that speaks volumes.
Fantasy Nº10: ‘The Beauty of Life’ by Vladimir Tzekov (Spain) An iconoclastic explosion of the myths we cling on to as truth. A feast of images, a cacophony of rhythms, a dance of words. These Granada-based performers are full of surprises, and they’ll do everything in their power to wrestle you into the present.
Solfatara by A Tres Bandes (Catalunia) What happens when your fear comes round for dinner, and your deepest, darkest thoughts refuse to lie low? Catalan group A Tres Bandes has created a relentlessly inventive and hilarious play that brought the house down at BE FESTIVAL 2012.
Featuring a lively post-show discussion and a celebratory atmosphere.
