CANCELLED: Best of BE Festival 2020

Date: Thursday, Mar 26 - Friday, Mar 27
Venue: Circomedia


Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up three favourite shows from its international festival in Birmingham and sends them on a tour of the UK. This year, an all-female lineup of companies from Belgium, Switzerland and Hungary will showcase snapshots of storytelling, dance, physical theatre all in one exhilarating evening.

Hungarian dance-artist Anna Biczók mixes memories, imagination and shifting perspectives to explore the phenomena of an ‘experience’ in her solo dance lecture Precedents To A Potential Future.

In The Sensemaker from Switzerland, a mute dancer panics and strains to keep her tightly orchestrated routine in time to the chopped and spliced soundtrack. Bits and pieces of music and spoken word are contrasted to push the protagonist to the limit.

Levitations by Belgium’s Hannah De Meyer is a dark, funny and surreal trip around Hannah’s universe. She effortlessly crafts together movement and poetry where hope and despair, being and not being, sexuality, love and death rub shoulders.

Circomedia / Tobacco Factory Theatres co-presentation.

March 26-27, Circomedia, 7.30pm, 2hrs 15 mins incl interval, £14/£11 concs.
