SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts & Culture has announced its line-up with a new-look website and Festival brochure for this year’s Generations and Legacies theme. This year’s festival, running from 28 February to 10 March 2013, will include new theatre productions, performances, exhibitions and the chance for Festival-goers to get involved.
Contributors to this year’s festival include artist Tom Marshman who will be working with older LGBT people to produce Move Over Darling on 9 March and Birmingham Rep’s Pengy. Pengy is SHOUT’s first piece of theatre aimed at young children and families, telling the real life story of two male penguins from New York Zoo who become a couple and adopt a chick called Tango.
Abbe Robinson, Festival Producer said ‘We’re thrilled to announce our full SHOUT Festival line up and look forward to what promises to be a very exciting programme. We have a diverse range of theatre, comedy, exhibitions, music, dance and talks on offer from a range of established and emerging artists. With plenty of opportunities for festival-goers to become actively involved, we’re sure that there will be something of interest for everybody’.
Festival brochures are available from the new Birmingham LGBT Centre, venues throughout the gay village and SHOUT Festival venue partners (including mac, The Public, Eden, Fox Bar and The Fountain Inn). An electronic version of the brochure, further information on artists and events, information on how to get tickets and the latest festival news is now available here.
