BARNfest is a small-scale festival open to the public and theatre community, showcasing theatre made in Somerset. It is taking place in Taunton at The Brewhouse and Cosy Club.
Join us for two days of fabulous shows, from some of our best loved and most celebrated theatre makers, including Pip Utton, Wassail Theatre, Sarah Mooney, Pirates of the Carabina, Viv Gordon and Jamie Wood. We will also be showcasing emerging artists and companies such as Atomic Rhubarb and Jordan Cottle.
Day two offers a kaleidoscope of theatre performances. From a wacky homage to Yoko Ono performed by Jamie Wood, to romantic drama The Holland Handkerchief, and family friendly dance theatre, A Real Fiction. There is sure to be something to capture your imagination.
Along with polished performances, BARNfest will include open rehearsals, work-in-progress and pitches. There will be an evening of performance and spoken word at the Cosy Club, featuring stand-up poet Elvis McGonagall, complete with supper and squashy sofas. For those who want to connect, there will be plenty of opportunities to network, meet the theatre-makers and discuss the performances.
BARNfest is produced by Take Art and The Brewhouse, with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. Full information and a timetable for both days is available at www.takeart.org
