Enter through the Back Door of The REP. The starting point will be the Construction Workshop of the venue, our festival hub. From here you can wander through various backstage areas and into The Studio to enjoy four different shows a night, each no longer than 30 mins and broken up by an interval like no other, where you can hang out in the bar or sit down to dinner.
Throughout the festival there will be 2 workshops taking place in the morning between 10.30am and 1.30pm. The workshops will led by international performers and directors and will focus on a range of acting and performance styles and techniques. Workshops are open to participating companies, festival volunteers, Midlands-based artists, students and interested audience members.
There is new democratic dynamic at play affecting how we think about our role in building a more harmonious and fairer society. This has given rise to a renewed sense of collectivism both locally and globally. Visual arts installations will explore the theme of modern democracy and participation and talks will give audiences the opportunity to chat with actors, artists and academics and analyse and discuss each other’s perspectives.
