Liverpool Biennial
Opens: 05/07/2014 Closes: 26/10/2014 Various venues, Liverpool
Sally Tallant is joined by two high-flying international curators for the city's eighth biennial, Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman. Subtitled A Needle Walks into a Haystack (as one is apt to feel like at biennials) the focus is on habitats and surroundings. That means, among the many projects on show, architect Claude Parent at the Albert Docks, a party inspired by ancient Greek revelry, a dazzleship commission and Aztecs. Indeed.

BE Festival
Opens: 02/07/2014 Closes: 12/07/2014 Birmingham REP
Pro European by nature, BE Festival is not just a place to watch new continental theatre, it also encourages conviviality: collective dinners are held in the interval every evening. Four half-hour pieces are on nightly, this year themed around ‘alternative currencies'. The 20 plus shows include Stan's Café tracing the start of WW1 to its miniscule origins, a frenetic double-act from Polish-Finnish duo Out of Balanz and a B-movie mashup from Spain.
