Headspinning performances from Europe’s four corners on Wed 6 Apr at 7.30pm. From Italy comes ‘Quintetto’ by TIDA, the 1st prize award winner at this year’s Birmingham based festival; a razor sharp and interactive comedy and physical theatre piece that packs a serious punch dealing with the realities of shoestring budget entertainment. ‘#sobrejulieta’ is a one-woman show craving to be a dialogue from Spanish company, Grumelot. Using a rather famous bard (2016 is his 400 year commemoration) as a way to the audience’s heart, ‘#sobrejulieta’ uses English, Spanish and projected video texts in this contemporary adaptation of a love story full of excess. The third performance entitled ‘The Whistle’ is by Darragh McLoughlin from Ireland’s Squarehead Productions.
