Fierce Festival is annual international festival of live art that takes place across Birmingham, UK. Live art includes performance, theatre, dance, music, installation, activism and digital practices.
Performances erupt in unusual spaces around the city - car parks, swimming pools, abandoned cathedrals, legendary clubs, the Brutalist Central Library and a former metal factory, as well as being presented in partnership with established art centres like IKON, Town Hall Symphony Hall, Birmingham REP and mac.
The next festival edition is 7 - 11 October 2015.
Since 2009, Laura McDermott and Harun Morrison have been joint artistic directors of Fierce. Fierce festival was founded as 'Queerfest' by Mark Ball in 1998 and rebranded as 'Fierce' two years later.
