TRANSFORM TAKEOVER

Posted on 11 May 2016

TRANSFORM TAKEOVER

A Nation’s Theatre Festival is a two-month celebration of theatre from around the UK from April – May 2016. Venues across London are joining forces to shine a light on shows made by artists based in villages, towns and cities with wildly different backdrops and personalities that colour the work they make.

As part of the festival, Transform is taking over Battersea Arts Centre on Saturday 21 May with a day of new shows, performances and events, brought to you by an inspiring array of artists and offering a taste of the adventurous spirit of Leeds’ independent performance scene.

TRANSFORM TRAILBLAZER - 7pm

The Transform Trailblazer gives a tantalising tease of some of the major themes and creative ideas our future festivals will explore – from the Reclaim The Night movement and contemporary gender politics, to cultural divisions and global threats, to subtle explorations of new artistic territories. Join inspiring artists at the very early stages of new projects as part of an intimate evening of scratch performances. Featuring Grace Surman, RashDash & Javaad Alipoor.
