INTRODUCTION This year, the fourth Arts by the Sea Festival, brings seventeen days of inspiring performances to Bournemouth with international premieres, new commissions, first time performers plus the return of some of our favourites. The festival opens with our award winning Opening Weekend, voted last year as the ‘Best Evening Experience of the Year’ at the Bournemouth Tourism Awards. We are pleased to welcome back French artists, Compagnie Carabosse, who return after seven years with their extraordinary Fire Gardens, transforming Bournemouth Gardens into a magical fiery landscape. And for those who were fortunate enough to experience The Electric Hotel from Fuel Theatre Company at the 2011 festival, this year we bring their spectacular new commission, The Roof, to The Waterfront space at Pier Approach. Combining fast paced free running, 3D sound and a spectacular outdoor arena specially designed by Jon Bausor, set designer for the Paralympic opening ceremony, the event is set to bring an energetic and edgy opener to the festival. With our festival theme of ‘On the Edge’ the programme continues to show how vital the arts are to our society, exploring the world in which we live and allowing us to engage with the community that surrounds us. Bringing emotion, excitement, mystery and magic, the festival offers a great opportunity to experience a wealth of unique artistic talent and outstanding performances, right here on our doorstep.

Conceived, directed and choreographed by David Rosenberg and Frauke Requardt, this is their third collaboration following Electric Hotel and Motor Show. The Roof is a truly unique experience taking place in a purpose built arena designed by Jon Bausor, set designer for the Paralympic opening ceremony. Sound and music Dave Price.

Fieri Consort The Lost Generation

Fri 3 Oct 19.30 Tickets £7 Location Shelley Theatre

Fri 3 Oct 19.30 Tickets £12 Location St Peter’s Church

Internationally renowned writer and performer Caroline Bergvall teams up with experimental Norwegian percussionist Ingar Zach and Swiss visual artist Thomas Köppel and together they invent a language of extremes: from the ancient pool of English and Nordic poetry to the lyrics of pop songs and human rights reports into contemporary sea migrants’ disasters.

Established in 2012, Fieri Consort are recognised internationally for their delicate, intricate and stunning sound. This performance features sacred works by French composers Poulenc, Milhaud, Messiaen and Durufle. In the first half of the 20th Century composers were on the edge of a shift in artistic direction following the many social and political changes taking place. Although not completely departing from traditional church music, these evocative works explore the compositional shifts happening at the time.

Fuel Fiction Sat 4 Oct 19.30 Sun 5 Oct 15.00/19.30 Tickets £10/£8 Location Ocean Room, Pavilion Dance 16+ Conceived by David Rosenberg and Glen Neath Written by Glen Neath. Directed by David Rosenberg. Presented by Fuel Theatre Company.

You are invited to a lecture. You know the subject is probably important and it would be useful to hear what the speaker has to say but you can’t keep your eyes open. You will fall asleep and you will dream. But you won’t be alone in your dream; everyone else will be there with you. And you will have a chaperone who knows the landscape and will attend to you. So nothing can go wrong... Fiction is the second performance by Glen Neath and David Rosenberg using binaural sound and absolute darkness. It is a nerve-wracking journey through the sprawling architecture of our dreams and an exercise in empathy. Or it is an opportunity to get a 60 minute nap? Fiction is not suitable for insomniacs.
