Culture Feast – A Seven Course Menu Of Contemporary Arts
The REP is excited to be part of the recently announced Culture Feast menu.
Birmingham's leading contemporary arts organisations have joined forces to create a “menu” that gives access to seven theatre, dance, music, film and art events all for £30 total.
With a single ticket purchase, art fans will get tickets for an exclusive launch event at Grand Union with a guided tour of Digbeth First Friday, a stunning new theatre production at The REP, two world-class dance events from Birmingham Hippodrome and DanceXchange, four world premieres from Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, tickets to the launch of Flatpack Festival at Town Hall and a guided tour of Ikon Gallery.
In addition to entry to these specially-selected events, the lucky ticket-holders will be welcomed to each Culture Feast event by a member of the host's team and afterwards they'll get to let it all sink in with an “audience exchange”, where they can chat to fellow Culture Feast visitors about what they've experienced (much like a “book group” for the contemporary arts).
The REP's Culture Feast offering is The String Quartet's Guide to Sex and Anxiety, an unmissable collision of music and drama created and directed by one of Europe's most exciting theatre directors, Calixto Bieito, and featuring the award-winning string powerhouse The Heath Quartet.
Culture Feast is another example of Birmingham's arts sector working together. It has grown out of the Birmingham Contemporary Arts Network in response to findings from the Understanding Audiences for the Contemporary Arts project at the University of Sheffield.
More information and tickets are available from culturefeast.org – for £30.
