The Best Of BE FestivalA slice of the BE (Birmingham European) Festival, combining three daring performances and dinner alongside the visiting artists. The three prize-winning shows being performed at The Pit are 'From the Waltz to the Mambo' by Hungary's Radioballet, Austrian Julia Schwarzbach's 'Loops and Breaks', and 'Waiting' by the award-winning Mokhallad Rasem from Belgium/Iraq. The BE Festival has gained a reputation for bringing Europe's most original new theatre to the UK which transcend the language barrier. Informal post-show discussions also give viewers a chance to exchange ideas with the creators.
