Plaza Avellaneda - play in Spanish (English subtitles) part of BE Festival

The BE Festival will be in Birmingham from 2nd July to 12th July

Each night, there are FOUR shows, each lasting no more than 30 mins. Each night there is at least show with some content from Spain or Latin America. All shows take place in The Studio. There's an interval after two performances when the audience are able to sit down for dinner together in an informal restaurant created in the venues main stage. Dinner is optional, and there is a relaxed bar area to enjoy aswell/instead. There is a real mix of work each night: think of it as 'theatre tapas'! For each individual, there's bound to be at least one thing you love and probably at least one thing perhaps less so! But hopefully the entire evening is an experience, where you will get to see a real range of theatre, some of which you probably wouldn't normally think of trying but hopefully go away from inspired and pleasantly surprised!

Tickets cost £12 (exc dinner)or you can get a 5 day pass for £50 (see below).

More info on the festival and how it all works here:

The second show of the four event package is called Plaza Avellaneda, by a Spanish/Argentinian duo called Teatro Secreto. It's a highly visual play, but with spoken text in Spanish (with English subtitles). It's a play about two estranged friends who meet in 2008, 16 years after seeing each other for the last time. Set in Argentina, it explores the recent turbulent political history of the country and how two individuals develop different ideological perspectives.

For dinner that night is Lamb and Wheat Kibbeh (or falafel) with Yoghurt and Butterbean Humus
Full menu:

The other three shows you will see that night are:

*A light-hearted solo dance piece from Hungary called From the Waltz to the Mambo,

* A pretty intense and minimal non verbal dance-theatre show from Poland called Everything We Were Not Born With

* A really warm-hearted English solo show about the Bjorg/McEnroe Wimbledon Final


Tickets available from The REP box-office for £12. Dinner costs £8 in addition.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
