Applications open for BE Festival
Applications are now open for theatre-makers from across Europe to perform at BE FESTIVAL 2012. The festival takes place from 3-8 July in Birmingham, and will offer selected companies more brilliant opportunities than ever before. Four touring prizes, a development prize, world-class workshops, delcious meals and unforgettable parties. It’s the perfect platform for testing work that’s brand new, and work that hasn’t toured in the UK before.
Of the 15 companies who performed at BE 2011, 10 have been programmed at other venues and festivals as a result of coming to BE – including London International Mime Festival, the Barbican, the South Bank Centre, the Lowry, Leeds Carriageworks, Bilbao ACT Festival, Sarajevo Mess Festival and Fabrica Movimentos in Porto.
We programme daring and delightful theatre that crosses borders of language, culture and style; theatre that can reach and inspire people of different nationalities. If this sounds like the theatre you make, don’t hesitate to apply. Come and BE part of something special…
The deadline is 17 February 2012, and all you have to do is send a completed application form and a link to a video of your work.
