An exciting showcase, sampling the best of European theatre.
BE FESTIVAL is Birmingham’s international festival of performing arts. Each year, we package up our top 3 shows from the festival and send them out to audiences around the UK. This year, the Best of BE will feature 3 delicious, 30-minute samples of mask, theatre, and circus, all in one evening!
Spanish company Kulunka Teatro present André and Dorine, an old couple who are forced to find ways to remember what once joined them together after the sudden onset of Alzheimer’s disease – a moving story, beautifully told through full masks. In What Does Stuff Do? Bristol-based performer Robin Boon Dale will spend 30 minutes, literally, tripping his way through a part guide, part motivational speech on juggling. Romain Teule’s show, Légende, unpacks the possibilities of language, and plays upon the (mis)interpretation of words, with amusing results.
