FEAST is back with four days of extraordinary theatre and experiences. FEAST 2019, 14th – 17th November promises to challenge, move and inspire you. FEAST is a warm and welcoming space so whether you are alone or with friends, a theatre veteran or a first timer you will feel right at home. FEAST celebrates life in all its diversely, all its ugliness and all it’s glory. For the opening night they invite you to join them in a mass earth healing meditation, dance performances and spoken word. Day two brings back the Shropshire inclusive Dance company with its latest piece ‘Being Seen’. When choreographer Jo Fong was asked: ‘Do you see the disability or the person?’ She said “I saw humanity in all its diverse beauty”. This will be a piece you won’t want to miss.
Friday evening kicks the festival into another gear with Friday Night Bite, a wild eclectic night of bite sized theatre, dance and dark cabaret including Bristol based dance company ‘Impermanence’. Day three is a movable FEAST with performances throughout the day. Their Main Saturday night show this year ‘All of me’ comes from Olivier award nominee Caroline Horton. ‘An intimate and absurd exploration of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we all sit together in the dark’. “Theatrically alive at every moment” Independent.
Sunday is the FEAST Family day including puppet workshops, dance explorations, adventure walks, sensory space stories and their main show Tom Thumb by Lyngo Theatre. This is an amazing way to introduce your little ones and yourselves to the wonders of theatre at a great price. Sunday evening closes FEAST ambitiously with ‘Motherland’ from Jo Tyabji in association with Milk Presents – ‘Punching fascists in the face through the medium of drag’. They hope you can join them for one. They’ll be there all weekend if you fancy a FEAST.
Bar and café open throughout the festival. Check out the website or find them on fb to find the full festival line up.
