How BE FESTIVAL is transforming the theatre experience

Little White Lies, David Jenkins, 19 June 2019


'... At the height of summer 2019, the Birmingham European Festival is celebrating its tenth edition in typical style. It’s the destination to indulge your taste for innovative and unique repertory theatre, as the organisers have brought together a programme of performances, workshops and talks that can be enjoyed in the comfortable (and well catered) environs of a top flight festival.

Highlights this year include: a UK premiere of acrobatic wild west tale ‘Deadtown’ by the Forman Brothers Theatre – connected to the late great Oscar-winner Miloš Forman; ‘PUNK‽’ which is a headbanging dance piece with added pogo sticks; and A Land Full of Heroes, a documentary theatre meets auto-fictional work centring on the life of Romanian writer Carmen-Francesca Banciu. To hear more about how BE FESTIVAL came together, we spoke with one half of its artistic direction team, Miguel Oyarzun. ...'
