Taking place between June 21-25, BE FESTIVAL is a cross-pollinating and boundary smashing explosion of theatre, dance, circus, comedy, music, visual and performing arts giving audiences the opportunity to explore and enjoy the backstage areas of The REP where the Construction Workshop acts as a Hub to the festival.
Every night includes the famous interval dinner which takes place on the main stage and after the stage performances there is the BE Late Stage which features a selection of International and UK bands and DJs taking the festival into the wee hours. Click here to view our interval dinner menus.
Each day of the festival there will be workshops taking place between 10.30am and 1.30pm. Led by international performers and directors, the workshops will focus on a range of acting and performance styles and techniques. Attendance is open to participating companies, festival volunteers, Midlands-based artists, students and interested audience members. To sign up for a workshop email firstname.lastname@example.org and give your ticket booking reference number. Limited capacity.
There is a new democratic dynamic at play affecting how we think about our role in building a fair and harmonious society. This has given rise to a renewed sense of collectivism both locally and globally. BE FESTIVAL artist-in-residence An Wei Lu Li will return to Birmingham to produce a series of new works.
