BE FESTIVAL (Birmingham European Festival) brings together daring, delightful theatre from across the continent. This triple bill of festival favourites – each half an hour long – offers you the chance to see Europe’s most exciting performers in action.
La Compagnie du Geste qui Sauve
BE 12 Winner – Best Physicality
A moving story, beautifully told through this Belgian group’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’
BE 12 Winner – Best Mise en Scène
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.
A Tres Bandes
BE 12 Winner – 1st Prize and Audience Prize
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.
The evening includes a lively post-show discussion and a celebratory atmosphere.
Running Time: 2 hours & 15 minutes – including interval
