About Fierce 2017

Fierce is a biennial festival of Live Art including theatre, music, installations, public interventions, workshops, talks and digital projects. This year we will be featuring new commissions such as ‘Notorious’ by The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein alongside work from our artist development programme Fierce FWD, internationally acclaimed performances and collaborations with local organisations big and small; using venues from warehouses to theatres, galleries to the streets.

This year’s festival runs from the 16th-22nd of October.
