Oito24 – is the ingenious name of a festival that takes place between Rua 8 and Rua 20 in Espinho from 08.00 to 24.00. For 3 days in summer, the streets, squares and many shops are given over to artists, performers and designers to create new projects and artistic creations, with strong involvement from the community. This free festival promotes encounters between creators, artists and the public, as well as outdoor film screenings and gourmet activities in the town market.
BE FESTIVAL exists to bring the best emerging European theatre companies and visual artists to Birmingham and beyond, offering opportunities to showcase their work; develop and exchange their ideas and practice; create extraordinary new work together; and engage with audiences in unique and innovative ways, with the aim of growing audiences for international theatre both locally and nationally. All of BE FESTIVAL’s year round activity has at its heart the desire to “cross borders” (cultural, social, linguistic, art form) and to nurture new talent.
FESTIVAL OF WONDER: Silkeborg International Festival of Puppet- Object, and Visual Theatre Denmark present theatre for adults, for children, films, exhibitions, workshops, masterclasses, and backstage talks. The intention is to invite events which add something new and inspiring to the art forms and to be a meeting place for exchanging new ideas. That goes for the Danish and international theatres, international festival directors, young talents, and the general audiences. 110 events in 5 days.
