Best of BE FESTIVAL 2013
9 October – 9 November
Travel across Europe in a night
This autumn, BE FESTIVAL will again tour the UK – and for the first 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.
It’s a unique chance to see the very best of Europe in one evening, so BE part of it.
Al Cubo by Betti Combo (France)
Three buffoons help and defy one another in equal measure, striving for the tallest construction and the perfect balance. Masterful circus meets mischievous theatre, with buckets of charm.
Tao Te by Ferenc Feher (Hungary)
Winner: ACT-Arriaga International Touring Prize, BE FESTIVAL 2013
A unique and intensely physical piece, fusing freestyle dance with martial arts. Seeking a harmonious and virtuous life, two men are dragged through a series of conflicts and struggles.
Next Door by Out of Balanz (Denmark)
Winner: 1st Prize and Audience Prize, BE FESTIVAL 2013
When Ivan Hansen’s neighbour passes away suddenly, Ivan realises he doesn’t know anything about him. Intimate storytelling and high-octane physical theatre explore what it is that really connects us.
