Recall is an online performance that keeps artistic practice alive and audiences connected 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 BE FESTIVAL 2021.
Commissioned by #BEatHome, Recall is an artistic response and testimony to the current time we are living in.
Multidisciplinary artist, architect and scenographer, Francesc Serra Vila has a special interest in temporary and evolving structures. Since 2013 he has presented individual as well as collaborative immersive, site-specific installations and live performances.
Each year, BE FESTIVAL packages up their favourite shows from their international festival and sends them on a tour of the UK. We have been privileged to co-present these shows with Circomedia in person for Bristol audiences for the past few years.
But 2020 was different. The global pandemic meant theatres across Europe were closed so BE FESTIVAL pivoted and curated their first online BE at HOME FESTIVAL. This is your opportunity to experience two of the best, most intimate online performances from the festival, which blur the boundaries between isolation and engagement.
Experience the thrill of quality theatre from across Europe from the comfort of your sofa.
