Birmingham Fest 2017

June 19th, 2017

2017 brings us the fifth Birmingham Fest and we are excited to be hosting five brilliant performances @AE Harris.

A Positive Life/Dystopia (A Cautionary Tale) – Autin Dance Theatre

A Positive Life is an immersive and interactive dance theatre experience about sex, love and relationships that follows the interpersonal stories of five exceptional performers in dance, spoken word and physical theatre.

Dystopia (A Cautionary Tale) is currently in the research and development phase. It is a thought-provoking dance theatre duet performed by international dance artists Laura Vanhulle and Johnny Autin, looking at our need for connection, compassion and our modern anxieties based on fear and violence.

Neighbourhood Watch – Gis a Gander Theatre

Have you ever had a neighbour who has been a pain? What other ‘stuff’ bungles your gravy boat brain? Meet Brassy Brenda and the Bumsville villagers.

S/he/it Happens – Miranda Porter/Le Juice

A comical failure of assimilating gender. Porter’s clown doesn’t know the rules about gender. As if unwatched in their own bedroom, they playfully mash-up elements of gender expression with optimism and naivety. The show is currently in development.
