NEWS: Green Man Festival unveils new performing arts area ‘Back of Beyond’

When: 18th-21st August 2016
Where: Brecon Beacons, Wales

This year, Green Man Festival will be bringing a variety of performing artists to a brand new stage, Back of Beyond.  Hidden behind woods within the Fortune Falls, the new area will be home to circus, dance, and many other forms of performance, featuring some of Wales’ brightest talents.  The stage is being co-curated by Citrus Arts alongside Circomedia, Flossy & Boo, Kitsch n Sync Collective and Tin Shed Theatre.  Together, they intend to make Back of Beyond a refuge of artistic expression.

At dusk each evening, Citrus Arts and Circomedia will be presenting ‘Precipice,’ a spectacle of circus theatrics that follows a set of explorers struggling to adapt to the altitude as they attempt to scale the world’s mightiest mountain.  Elsewhere, National Dance Company Wales are premiering their first ever festival piece.  ‘Animatorium’ will see the award-winning group brought to life and animated by a charming yet sinister Master in a dark but comic performance.

There are also a host of pop-up arts experiences across the site.  Highlights include Wet Picnic putting on surreal theatre in a variety of locations, and there will be puppetry from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.  Sparkles Hoop Troupe will be putting on some comedy hoop performances, while Burnt Toast are opening up their mobile, time-travelling post-office.
