BHVR13-1 Behaviour Festival 2014 Glasgow

March 6 at 6:00pm until May 2 at 9:00pm

The Arches, 253 Argyle St, G2 8DL

 Raging political theatre, a multi-chambered club event and award-winning international work… Welcome to Behaviour Festival 2014.

Each year, Behaviour showcases some of the most diverse and inventive theatrical performance talent for Glasgow’s audiences. With the festival now in its fifth year, Behaviour 2014 is set to be one of our biggest yet, with seventeen events across the city between the March 6th and May 2nd. As ever, we welcome a wide-ranging array of award-winning national and international artists to The Arches, as well as taking work beyond our own brick walls to performance spaces and locations throughout Glasgow.

“One of the major themes in the festival this year is the interaction of live music with other disciplines. We’re thrilled to be working with Tramway again in the presentation of In May, with music by Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy, and we are excited to uncover a special late night club-inspired addition to the festival, Dark Behaviour. We’ll be working with arts collective 85A to create an extraordinary multi-chambered night of installations, happenings and music that fully embraces the spirit of The Arches.

Elsewhere in the programme, there is a notable politicised edge. A strong feminist seam includes Alan Bissett, Bryony Kimmings, Rosana and Amy Cade, Sh!t Theatre, Silvia Gallerano and Cristian Ceresoli. Each approach the subject from different perspectives and, taken cumulatively, they represent a fierce anger at the inequality inherent within our global economic systems and its specific impact on women.

Thanks to the generous support of various partners, including the Goethe Institut, we are able to present the UK premiere of Hate Radio by Milo Rau in the main arch spaces. Signifying a radical move forward in the field of documentary theatre, this devastating work takes the audience into the glass cage of a radio studio during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, where actors, some of whom were directly affected by the event itself, replay events as they took place on Radio Television Libre.

Behaviour is defined by a particular disobedient energy. Come and misbehave with us.”
