Best of BE Festival
BE Festival14 Mar 7.30pm
BE FESTIVAL is Birmingham’s annual showcase of the finest, most innovative performance art from across Europe – each year, Best of BE FESTIVAL packages up the three top shows and takes them on the road.
In Take Care of Yourself, Swiss daredevil and circus performer Marc Oosterhoff gives an edge-of-the-seat performance – literally – by attempting to perform a series of hair-raising stunts after working through a row of whiskey shots. Performance artist, illusionist and professional liar Tom Cassani questions our collective construction of truth and lies in Someone Loves You Drive With Care; and the funny, pulsating, almost perfectly controlled multimedia circus show Control Freak demonstrates Kulu Orr’s computer genius and desperate pursuit to control everything on stage.
