The Be Theatre Festival has opened in Birmingham, featuring 60 artists from across Europe.

The week-long festival at the Birmingham Rep is designed to inspire ideas for future productions.

Events include installations and stage productions, with many performances just 30 minute long.

Isla Aguilar and fellow director Miguel Oyarzun said the festival was a good opportunity for artists and audiences to interact.
