Nottingham European Arts & Theatre Festival (NEAT 11)

Nottingham European Arts and Theatre Festival (NEAT 11) is a brand new festival which will see major arts venues in Nottingham celebrate the very best European theatre, music, performance, film and visual art for adults and children.

Highlights include The League of Youth by Henrik Ibsen, in a new version by Andy Barrett, The UK premiere of Woyzeck by Deutsches Theater (Berlin) and the spectacular production of Goethe’s Faust by the Polish Theatr Nowy all here at Nottingham Playhouse. There will also be a series of fringe events and performances of the very best contemporary European drama and music throughout the festival in our studio space, The Playroom.

Elsewhere, look out for Cheek by Jowl’s Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov performed by the company’s Russian Ensemble at Theatre Royal Nottingham and Det Norske Teatret (Norway) and Gruppe 38* (Denmark) at Lakeside Arts Centre.

Nottingham Contemporary will present innovative live performances by two companies with Nottingham and European connections – Gobsquad and Reckless Sleepers and at New Art Exchange there will be screening of the documentary Arna’s Children by Juliano Mer Khamis which offers a rare and poignant window into the lives and deaths of a lost generation of Palestinians.

Broadway Cinema will show a selection of European films throughout the festival and performance art collective Hatch will present a programme of live art at unusual locations around the city.
