In its 12th year, Foreign Affairs – an annual festival devoted to contemporary performance from across the world – features work playing with ideas of time. One of the boldest is Mount Olympus (Jun 27), a world premiere from Belgian director Jan Fabre. It’s a 24-hour performance featuring Greek theatre’s usual suspects – Medea, Antigone, Dionysus and so on – and lots of visual elements. The Festspielhaus will provide cots and tents for napping, and a “Greek pop fitness programme” will refresh weary bodies. American theatre artist Miguel Gutierrez brings a workout of his own with the supremely giddy Deep Aerobics (Jun 25). Audience participation encouraged, of course, but not required. The festival also features several pieces by provocative, boundary-pushing Spanish performer Angélica Liddell (Jun 30-Jul 5), known for swigging beer and drawing her own blood onstage.
