Be Festival

Scratch performance by BE Next (Made in Birmingham)

People from every corner of the world are proud to call Birmingham ‘home’. From Kings Heath to Handsworth, the city’s streets are alive with as many languages and accents as you might hear across a continent. BE Next, BE FESTIVAL’s young company, sets out to celebrate our unique community by working with 14-19 year-olds from all over Birmingham, many of whom speak a language other than English.

The company have been working with professional theatre-makers Manuel Bonillo (Vladimir Tzekov, Spain) and Won Kim (Pas de Dieux, France) to create a brand new show for the closing night.

See here the highlights from last year’s project:
