Pecha Kucha Plays

Sunday 27th May, 2012, 6pm 
Free (booking required)


Writers announced!

Eclectic collaborations.

Rapid-fire presentations.

Brand new six and a half minute plays performed in Pecha Kucha’s famous 20×20 format. Fast & furious new writing.

Pecha Kucha was originally devised by Klein Dytham Architects in Japan as a format for designers and architects to share their work and inspiration in a snappy and concise way – talking about each of 20 slides for just 20 seconds per slide. The 20×20 format has become a global phenomenon, with events now regularly taking place in over 400 cities worldwide.

Jointly hosted by Pecha Kucha Birmingham and Pecha Kucha Coventry alongside Capital Theatre Festival, this evening’s event is a worldwide Pecha Kucha first!

Eight visual artists each supplied us with a set of 20 images – we then gave each set to a regionally-based writer and asked them to write a play to fit the 20 images and the 20 seconds per image format.

Tonight we get to see and hear how they got on…
