ACTBilbao

05Jun12

Still reeling from a whirlwind week of workshops, discussions, performances and general enlightenment at the excellent ACT Festival in Bilbao. Friends met up with and friends made. The programme concluded with an end-of-Festival performance of Kindle’s The Furies, followed by an all-night party in which the best of Basque beats segued into more familiar Anglophonic sounds, including some shavings of Metal in a respectful nod to our closing performance, which had the crowd chanting “We will have Revenge!” and demanding a balcony returns from the Kindle trio.

The deco splendour of the Kafe Antzokia provided one of the many backdrops to the Festival, now in it’s 9th year. ACT was the modeled inspiration for Birmingham’s own successful BEFest, which is about to launch it’s 3rd season of European Theatre @AEHarris in July. (here’s the downloadable programme for 2012)
