FEAST will return to Great Malvern next month offering four days of extraordinary theatre and experiences.
Held from 14 to 17 November, the 'Festival of Equality in Arts and Society through Theatre' aims to challenge, move and inspire audiences.
Now in its fourth year, the festival offers the best of regional and national contemporary theatre based at Malvern Cube in Great Malvern.
FEAST will begin with a free Earth Healing Meditation on Thursday night where visitors are invited to bring a cushion and listen to poetry and spoken word.
This will be followed by a performance of 'Being Seen' by Shropshire Inclusive Dance Company and choreographer Jo Fong on Friday. An extraordinary ensemble of dancers with and without disabilities will wow audiences with a refreshing and energetic performance.
After this, Friday Night Bite will offer a wild eclectic night of bite-sized theatre, dance and dark cabaret. This will be a gritty night to remember with exciting new performance work from all over the country.
On Saturday, Olivier Award nominee Caroline Horton & Co and China Plate will present 'All of Me', an 'intimate', 'absurd' and 'beautiful' show exploring themes of depression and death.
The festival will end on Sunday with a Family Theatre Day on Sunday offering magical theatre adventures, puppetry workshops, adventure walks, as well as a showing of Tom Thumb by Lyngo Theatre. 'Motherland' by Jo Tyabji will be the last performance which explores nationalism, identity and society.Cllr Beverley Nielsen, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Tourism at Malvern Hills District Council, said:
"FEAST is a fantastic representation of local and national talent and we are so lucky that we have the chance to enjoy this in Great Malvern. I would urge people of all ages to take advantage of the many events on offer which aim to challenge, move and inspire".
