Best of BE at Home Festival 2021: SHAN SHUI

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.

Shan Shui

by Edurne Rubio & María Jerez 

(Spain/Belgium) 20 mins

With everyone spending more time at home, Shan Shui – the Chinese word for landscape and means mountain water, inventively brings a sense of the freedom and outside space by immersing you in sights and sounds found in nature. In this performance the artists use objects and props found around the home to paint a landscape without paintings from the emptiness of confinement.

Edurne Rubio and María Jerez are currently working on a theatre piece A Nublo which was scheduled to be performed at BE FESTIVAL this year. A Nublo is their first co-authored work, which combines the different sensitivities and interests of each, and proposing a common world. Shan Shui is an online spin-off of this new work.
