Best of BE at Home Festival 2021: RECALL

This event has passed

This show forms part of our #LoveLowry programme.

Experience the thrill of quality live theatre from across Europe from the comfort of your sofa.

Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up their favourite shows from their international festival and sends them on a tour of the UK. But 2020 was different. The global pandemic meant theatres across Europe were closed so we pivoted and curated our first online Be at HOME FESTIVAL. This is your opportunity to experience two live one-to-one and experiential online performances which blur the boundaries between isolation and engagement.

Recall is an online performance that keeps artistic practices alive and connected with audiences during this time of physical distancing and confinement.

The project reflects on how the brain works and how memories are stored. In this one-to-one performance, each participant is invited to answer a simple question; their response triggers a performative action, which connects to other people’s responses.

The outcome will be a collection of scattered testimonies from across Europe of experiences during confinement. These series of memories will be collated and reflected on during this years’ BE FESTIVAL.

Commissioned by #BEatHome, Recall is an artistic response and testimony to the current time we are living in.
