A Universal Story

by David Espinosa Cerdán

Following research into objects as a narrative element, David Espinosa Cerdán has tried to dramatise universal history from his own perspective, creating an audio-visual journey through some of the events that constitute the development of humanity.

This unique history class tells a brief and unfinished story, using object manipulation, choreographic actions and shadow projection to draw you into this fascinating world.

David Espinosa is an artist based in Barcelona. His performances and interactive installations blur the boundaries of theatre, dance, and visual arts. His unique small shows have been presented in many of the great theatres and festivals around the world.

Let’s Grieve

by Amerah Saleh

Let’s Grieve is curated through a collection of stories about the experience of grief. It explores how we mourn, cope with loss, the changes someone goes through when letting go and the process of learning how to adapt and move on.


by Francesc Serra Vila

LET’S GO OUT FOR A WALK? is a bespoke performative piece designed for senior citizens. Individual participants were invited on a journey to connect their memories from the past to the present. This project is a continuation of the Visual Arts Residency programme that Francesc started with BE FESTIVAL in 2019, and that explores the theme Archives and Memories.


Join this conversation featuring two artists talking about the intimate projects they created specifically for BE FESTIVAL in collaboration with communities from across Birmingham. The artists will be talking about the processes used to create the pieces as well as sharing some of the stories they collected along the way.
