Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up their favourite shows from their international festival and sends them on a tour of the UK. But 2020 was different. The global pandemic meant theatres across Europe were closed so we pivoted and curated our first online Be at HOME FESTIVAL. This is your opportunity to experience two live one-to-one and experiential online performances which blur the boundaries between isolation and engagement.

Please support your nearest venue by purchasing your tickets from their website. 

Recall

Recall is an online performance that keeps artistic practices alive and connected with audiences during this time of physical distancing and confinement. 

The project reflects on how the brain works and how memories are stored. In this one-to-one performance, each participant is invited to answer a simple question; their response triggers a performative action, which connects to other people’s responses

The outcome will be a collection of scattered testimonies from across Europe of experiences during confinement. These series of memories will be collated and reflected on during this years’ BE FESTIVAL

Commissioned by #BEatHome, Recall is an artistic response and testimony to the current time we are living in.    

Multidisciplinary artist, architect and scenographer, Francesc Serra Vila has a special interest in temporary and evolving structures. Since 2013 he has presented individual as well as collaborative immersive, site-specific installations and live performances.

With everyone spending more time at home, Shan Shui – the Chinese word for landscape, which means mountain water -inventively brings a sense of the freedom and outside space by immersing you in sights and sounds found in nature. In this performance the artists use objects and props found around the home to paint a landscape without paintings from the emptiness of confinement.

Edurne Rubio and María Jerez are currently working on a theatre piece A Nublo which was scheduled to be performed at BE FESTIVAL in 2020. A Nublo is their first co-authored work, which combines the different sensitivities and interests of each, and proposing a common world. Shan Shui is an online spin-off of this new work.
