We’ve just announced our final show of the year – 1st December at Centrala in Celebration of ORE’s Album Launch. It’s a jam packed bill featuring performances from ORE, Adrena Adrena, Health & Efficiency and ILL. All for just a mere £5. With DJs til late it promises to be the ultimate closer to another Digbeth First Friday.
As if that wasn’t enough of a pull – our event provides the finale to a Guided Tour around a multitude of Digbeth First Friday events that evening, starting at 6pm, as part of brilliant new Arts initiative in Brum.
For just £25, sample the best in Birmingham’s contemporary scene with access to six events from Stan’s Cafe, DanceXchange, Town Hall Symphony Hall, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, and exclusive guided tours around Digbeth First Friday and Ikon Gallery. That’s six theatre, dance, music and art events all for £25 total.
It’s a truly unique experience – each evening you’ll be greeted by a member of the team who will welcome you to the event and afterwards you’ll get to let it all sink in in a post-event audience exchange, where you can chat to fellow Culture Feast visitors about what you’ve experienced (much like a “book group” for the contemporary arts).
The events included in Culture Feast are:
Time Critical – Stan’s Cafe THEATRE
Wednesday 8 November, 8pm at mac birmingham
Time Critical pits two performers against each other. She must compress 26 years of world events into 26 minutes; all the wars and elections, inventions and natural disasters, sporting successes and dance sensations. He has the same job for a theatre company, all timed by an ever-ticking chess clock. This fun, poignant and high-tempo theatre production invites us to consider how our personal histories run alongside and interweave with world events.
