‘It is difficult to imagine a more rewarding and enjoyable night out’ –

★★★★★ What’s On Stage

A grand tour of boundary smashing European performance in one exhilarating night

Birmingham’s boundary smashing festival of international performance takes to the road on a whirlwind journey of European theatre, dance & circus. Experience the highlights from the 2015 edition as three daring solo performances land in the HUB each ready to play with audience expectation.

A humorous and honest one-woman show about love, chemistry and excess, #sobrejulieta sees Carlota Gaviño from Madrid try to win our hearts in this stripped-back new take on Romeo and Juliet.

From Italy comes Quintetto by TIDA, the 1st prize award winner at this year’s festival; a razor sharp, funny and physical theatre piece that packs a serious punch

Irish performer Darragh McLoughlin will invite spectators to determine what they watch, prompting their eyes to open and close during a multitude of rapid scene changes. The Whistle is packed with deft circus skills and underpinned by a hidden narrative.

Running time:  2 hours 30 mins including post show discussion and inclusive (vegan) supper!

“The evening is structured like a fresh and tasty three course meal” The Times

“Some of the most innovative work being made across Europe” The Guardian

Age guidance 14+

#sobrejulieta is performed in English and some Spanish, with accompanying surtitles

There is a very limited capacity so to reserve a ticket please email boxoffice@slunglow.org with the number of tickets you wish to reserve and a contact telephone number.

'I have put Holbeck in my address for the last two years but today was the first time I discovered the heart of it - I had no idea about the pubs, social clubs, quaint back to back terraces and history that makes up the real Holbeck, south of the canal.  A big thanks to Slung Low for opening my eyes to a place I have claimed to call home.'  - Audience Member
