Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Fierce / Flatpack and a New Year

A new year has come around and it’s time to look ahead to what’s in store for 2012.

Flatpack Festival returns from 14-18 March with their fantastic festival of film and much much more. Their programme is due to be announced soon.

Fierce Festival, will be from 29 March – 8 April incorporating Easter. They have a little more information for us…

As well as dachshunds galore there will lots of other events to get your cultural teeth into. Mette Edvardsen with Birmingham REP will see entire books from the soon to be defunct Central Library memorised and recited to visitors. A celebration of literature inspired by Truffaut’s Fahrenheit 451.  In Berlin Love Tour, a guided tour of Berlin will take place on the streets of Birmingham inspired by a tale of love and heartbreak in the German capital (reminds me of BAZ‘s Berliningham…)

The best alternative Easter (Easter! sorry, too soon) celebrations will be provided by Fierce this year with events such as Coventry-born Daniel Lismore’s Shabba Dabba Dah Birmingham Easter weekend special. Channelling the spirit of Leigh Bowery, Lismore changes his visual identity daily, continually re-inventing and documenting his ever-changing look. He brings his opulent and outrageous London-based club night to Birmingham for a very special edition.

It sounds like a good’un! I’ve already been looking on Daniel Lismore’s websites for inspiration for outfits!

On another note, I will be travelling for a lot of 2012. If there is anyone interested in contributing to the blog please get in contact. I may have to let MCtV lie fallow.
