Travel across Europe in a night

This autumn, BE FESTIVAL will again tour the UK – and for the second time, Spain. You can see three award-winning festival favourites in one night, each half an hour long. The shows are followed by a chaired discussion with all the performers.

Winner: Best Individual Performer Prize, BE FESTIVAL 2014

In the hands and in the body of a single performer, a 1960’s Hungarian ballroom dance manual becomes a tool for questioning today’s dogmas surrounding beauty and education. A disarmingly straightforward, funny, and personal meeting of a vintage text and a contemporary performance language.

Radioballet are Hungarian dance artists, Bea Egyed and Milán Újvári. With cultural differences and shared understanding central to their work, they are particularly looking forward to performing in front of an English-speaking audience (with an English sense of humour!) for the first time at BE FESTIVAL 2014.

Julia invites you, the audience, to make the action by responding to a series of shifting instructions prepared especially for the BE FESTIVAL crowd. The stage expands to become a blur of watching and performing, interpretation, cooperation and play, where everyone can join the game of finding common ground together, and where every contribution is precious.

Since studying at Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance and Roehampton University, London, Julia has worked with choreographers including Sasha Waltz, Rosalind Crisp, Ted Stoffer and Mia Lawrence. She is a member of tanz_house, a Salzburg based platform for choreography.

Winner: ACT Festival Prize , BE FESTIVAL 2014

It can be an interruption, a pause, or an obstacle to a future not yet begun. We wait for insight or for a bus. Until pain subsides. For word of a loved one, for toilet paper, money or for a visa. Different worlds clash quietly through traces of dance, performance and film in a meditation upon the fundamental human experience of waiting.

Mokhallad worked at the National Theatre of Iraq before the war changed the course of his life. Now resident director at Toneelhuis in Antwerp, Belgium, he won the 2013 Young Director’s award at the Saltzburger Festspiele for Romeo & Juliet.
