Best of BE20/10/2016 By IYMA

This week Best of BE starts its tour in Spain. Every year several performances from BE Festival are chosen to tour through Spain and the UK. This year all the selected performances are part of the IYMA network. 

Three performances from Italy and Germany will visit several cities in Spain. Reload, the latest performance by Teatro Sotterraneo, which had its world premiere at BE Festival shows a series of stage interruptions. They will analyse the feeling triggered by something ending prematurely, inspired by Samuel Beckett’s philosophy of the benefits of failure.

Oliver Zahn will show his piece Situation with Outstretched Arm’, or better said the  saluto romano, the olympic salute, the Bellamy Salute or in its most common form, the Hitler Salute. One of the most powerful and violent symbols of the twentieth century is re-contextualised on stage through a physical performance essay performed by Isabelle Przemus.

The show must go on with Marco Chenevier of TiDA with his performance Quintetto wherein the tech and lighting are crew have gone missing. The outcome is uncertain but the answer lies in the audience’s hands.
