Fierce Festival 2017, Birmingham

Birmingham's International Festival of Performance returns this October 16 - 22.

Fasten your seatbelts: Fierce is back to take Birmingham by storm! Our exhilarating 2017 lineup features international performance art, theatre, dance, cabaret, gigs, talks and parties. Expect over 50 events including 8

UK premieres, 6 world premieres and artists from 12 countries.

Since 1997 Fierce has been capturing the imagination of the city with memorable public artworks such as the 'Birdman of Birmingham' - a giant nest and birdman installed on the Bullring Rotunda and Luke Jerram's incredible Sky Orchestra which put the CBSO Orchestra in hot air balloons as well as many legendary dark and messy parties of provocative performance art and avant garde cabaret that have earned us a reputation as one of the most daring and fun arts organisations in the country.

The full programme will be launched on Tuesday 18th July. We'd love you to join us at the launch event at the Birmingham Hippodrome, 6-8pm. Please RSVP to contact@wearefierce.org, by Wednesday 12th July as space is strictly limited. Festival tickets will go on sale shortly afterwards.

This will be the first programme under the direction of new Fierce team: Aaron Wright, Pippa Frith and Catherine Groom.
