Marchland Festival opens next month!
“A space in the heart of London where artists and audience alike can come together to share and unpick European stories in an attempt to answer the question, 'how do we live together?'.”
Lost kingdoms and frozen conﬂicts, melting pots and museum pieces, grey areas between the black and white of competing nationalism. Welcome to Marchland, Théâtre Volière’s season of performance and interdisciplinary events from Europe’s borderlands. We are... an Anglo-French theatre and production company from Strasbourg, capital of Alsace; Europe’s crossroads, and one of its many borderlands with a rich and turbulent history. Marchland is our response to the crises of identity currently sweeping Europe. We wanted to create a season that was more enlightenment than light entertainment; a neutral space where many traditions could come together and ask: “What can the voices from Europe’s liminal spaces, past and present, tell us about what it means to be European today?”
Mon 5 February- Sat 3 March 2018, at The Bridewell Theatre, 14 Bride Lane, Fleet Street, London EC4Y 8EQ.
Lots of stuff on this weekend! Thanks London Macadam Magazine for the tips!
Bold Belgian talent at LONDON INTERNATIONAL MIME FESTIVAL
OUR SECOND BIG SHOW FROM BELGIUM!
TONEELHUIS/FC BERGMAN (Wed 31 Jan > Sat 3 Feb) makes its UK premiere with 300 el x 50 el x 30 el - a story set in a small comm...unity living deep in a forest. But there are bizarre goings-on behind closed doors... a camera circles the stage, projecting each miniature story onto a large screen, making us all voyeurs - this is live-theatre-meets-film, as the characters reveal their strange stories. Absolutely stunning!
