Fierce Festival is back - and not just in Birmingham!
One of the UK’s most respected festivals for live art, Fierce features performances in popular venues and out-of-the-ordinary spaces across the second city - but there are also shows taking place at Coventry’s Warwick Arts Centre tonight.
Justin Shoulder’s Carrion is a post-human spectre with the ability to shapeshift into multiple forms and speak multiple languages. Drawing on queer and bicultural ancestral mythologies, Carrion ‘transports us into a place where the distant past collides with the far future, alerting us to the changes that already lie within ourselves’.
The show forms part of a double bill alongside Davy Pieter's How Did I Die, a realistically fictional, cinematic, physical production which is particularly suitable for people who enjoy a good thriller.
Fierce’s 2019 line-up of attractions also includes a Grand Opening event, taking place at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery on Wednesday and hosted by Birmingham drag favourite Ginny Lemon.
The evening comprises four hours of pop-up performances from the likes of Sandra Johnston, Ariah Lester and Lucy McCormick. Attendees can raise a glass to the launch of the festival and dance the night away with the DJs. And best of all, it’s free!
