SHOUT, Birmingham’s festival of queer culture launches today and runs until 23 November. The programme has some great events and happenings.
- The Uncontrollability Of Love, stunning photographs by Jak Flash and featuring people from the local LGBT community as models. The photographs are based on the work of Edward Burne-Jones. The large format pictures will be displayed around Hurst Street and other festival venues during November.
- Qasim Riza Shaheen‘s residency at the mac with a series of video installations, performances exploring ‘the dance disciple, cinema icons and the object of one’s affection’.
- The Irrepressibles – ‘Pop-meets-art’ project. ‘A dark, mirrored fantasy inside which the 10-piece performance orchestra play and move like an extraordinary flock of marionettes.’ Sounds like one not to be missed!
