About the festival


Fierce Festival is one of the UK's most respected festivals of Live Art & the leading organisation for Live Art in the West Midlands.


It has an international reputation for agenda setting curation & intelligent commissioning that has seen Fierce commissions tour worldwide.


The festival embraces theatre, dance, music, installations, activism, digital practices and parties.


Fierce fills the city with performances in theatres, galleries and other out-of-the-ordinary spaces.


Fierce believes that live art is the 'engine room' of our culture.


It is a space where new performative ideas find a form for their expression and create surprising, provocative and inspiring collective moments for audiences in the West Midlands and beyond.


Fierce is committed to supporting emerging, overlooked, unusual & difficult live art practices from around the world and invites visionary artists interested in 'liveness', from a range of artistic disciplines, to work in Birmingham.


Beyond the festival frame, Fierce plays a pivotal role in the local arts ecology, developing the cultural offer of the city & supporting local artist communities with its Fierce FWD artist development programme & year round initiatives including its popular Club Fierce late night events series.


Fierce's work is informed by an intersectional queer politic that seeks to challenge established understandings of art & give a platform to marginalised artists who have no choice but to embody their politics.


These voices, stories & ideals, we believe, need to be told in order to reflect the ever changing, diversifying society in which we live.
