BRIGHTON Festival is bringing live music, dance and theatre performances to venues across the city.

Here are some of the best happening today, Wednesday:

Till We Win at Brighton Dome Concert Hall

In a sleepy rural town, a group of young outsiders are living under a dark cloud. Determined not to allow its shadow to destroy the things they love, Till We Win is the story of their revolution.

This devised performance combines anarchic theatre, film, circus, dance and original music. Live BSL interpretation (British Sign Language), audio description and captions are included as integrated features of the show.

Wednesday, 2.30pm

Tickets cost £8, under 26s £5

Human at Brighton Dome Concert Hall

“Part circus, part serenade, part cinema, Human is about the small moments that shape us.”

On a stage set with a trapeze, circus rope and set of drums, four performers start to tell stories from their lives, from their childhoods, and from the last 24 months.

Wednesday at 7pm

Tickets cost £15, under 26s £10, festival standby £10

Wednesday at 1pm

Ruysdael Quartet at All Saints, Hove

The Netherlands based Ruysdael Quartet performs a programme that looks back to Purcell and then Beethoven’s unrivalled mastery of the string quartet and brings the form into the 21st century with Louis Andriessen’s Miserere.

Wednesday at 7.30pm

Tickets cost £20, under 26s £15, festival standby £10

Peaceophobia at Brighton Marina Car Park

Peaceophobia is a response to rising Islamophobia around the world. Part-car meet, part-theatre, the show explores “how you find peace in a world that tells you who you are”.

Staged in a carpark with a Supra, a Golf and a classic Nova, Peaceophobia brings together cars and theatre with cinematic lighting and an original electronic sound score.
