A three-day festival that zooms in on innovative productions by contemporary national and international theatre makers and choreographers. They include the choreographer Omar Rajeh from Beirut, whose dance show #minaret (1 November) forms an appeal on behalf of devastated cities and their inhabitants, culture, history, value and future. He uses a drone flying above the stage and a live soundtrack to make a statement against the cruelty of war and the ideology behind it. Crash Park (31 October) is another good tip. French director and visual artist Philippe Quesne constructs an uninhabited island complete with palm trees and rare animals. But the natural tranquillity is disturbed by survivors of a plane crash. Is this the end or a new beginning?
