How to Book Tickets
Tickets for all shows can be bought online up until the day of the event. If there are tickets left you can also pay ‘on the door’. Additionally you can book tickets for the shows taking place at Birmingham Hippodrome, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Midlands Arts Centre, and Warwick Arts Centre in person, by phone and online at the correlating box office.
Tickets for Selina Bonelli’s performance ‘(un) certain twitches’ at Vivid Projects are only available via the Vivid Projects website nearer the time.
For Fierce fans this year we are offering two types of heavily discounted passes that gain entry to numerous events. Most similar to 2017’s Weekend Pass is the Mini Pass, that gets entry to 9 events over the Fri/Sat/Sun for £85 (just £9.44 per event!). There are just 50 of these available. They include the following shows, and specific time slots must be selected on booking:
Andrew Tay & Stephen Thompson – Make Banana Cry
Doris Uhlich – Every Body Electric
Gillie Kleiman & Greg Wohead – Familiar
Lucy McCormick – Life: Live!
Marco Berrettini – iFeel2
Mariana Valencia – ALBUM
Miet Warlop – Ghost Writer and the Broken Hand Break
Nicola Gunn – Working with Children
A bigger Festival Pass that includes entry to all of the above plus Oozing Gloop’s The Gloop Show, Ellen Furey & Malik Nashad Sharpe’s SOFTLAMP.autonomies and Joseph Keckler, In Concert is available for £125. Only 50 of these passes are available.
Neither of these passes include the limited capacity shows which are listed below.
Limited Capacity Shows
A number of shows aren’t included in the festival pass – this is because they have a very limited capacity – so you can book a slot for them separately. The limited capacity shows are:
Alexandra Bachzetsis – Private: Wear a Mask when you talk to me
A dance solo for a small capacity audience
Begüm Erciyas – Voicing Pieces
An installation for one audience member at a time
Kate McIntosh – In Many Hands
A participatory experience for a small group
Tania El Khoury – The Search For Power
An immersive theatre piece for a small group
Warwick Arts Centre Gala Double Bill – with free bus!
To launch the festival in style on Tuesday 15th October we will have a Gala opening comprised of a double bill of shows at Warwick Arts Centre – a double bill ticket is available. Book for the UK premieres of Justin Shoulder’s Carrion and Davy Pieter’s How Did I Die and join us on the free Fierce bus, leaving Digbeth at 6pm! Reserve your spot on the bus when you book via the Fierce website. We hear there might even be on board entertainment ;)
The Fierce Artist Pass
We recognise the importance of artists being involved in local and global conversations around creativity and understand that seeing a broad a range of work by national and international artists is an important way to fuel creative practice.
The Fierce Artist Pass offers access to concession rate tickets for festival shows to Live Artists, contemporary performance makers, and those working with expanded understandings of choreography who aren’t in receipt of a regular salary. Only 50 artist passes are available and will be designated on a first come first basis after approval via the signup steps below.
At this time we are not able to extend this offer to object makers, writers, directors and more traditional dance makers.
To get your pass please follow these three easy steps:
1) Sign up to our mailing list (if you haven’t already).
2) Email email@example.com with your CV, biography or a weblink to your work. We will confirm by email when your Artist Pass is available.
3) Print off your artist pass and bring it along to the festival.
Please bring your Artist Pass to each venue box office when buying and collecting tickets and when attending events. The Artist Pass covers one ticket per show for the individual named on the Artist Pass. Passes and tickets are not transferable. Please provide ID alongside your Artist Pass when buying and collecting tickets from the box office. The Artist Pass provides you with a concession rate ticket at Fierce shows where standard concession rate tickets are in place.
