Join an epic club experience for the finale of Transform 23.

Experience a collective odyssey and interact with myths and monsters from your deepest and darkest imaginings.

Discover our incredible line up of performers and DJs below!

Having crawled out of a pit of Yorkshire dirt, dubious creature China will bring dark disco, undulating synths and an Odyssean nightmare.

Creating performance based in working class experience, queer masculinity, and artistic libertarianism – POPPERFACE will craft masculine mythologies through dance and occultism.

Leeds-based drag artist Vee Dagger draws on the aesthetics of Taiwanese opera and lesbian identity to explore the melodrama of overwhelming emotion.

Choreographer and performer Bakani Pick-Up explores the limitations of borders, language and law, through energetic dance rallying in protest.

With a MEXA takeover and DJ sets from Leeds-based Cara-Mia and queer club night Rat Party, plus more to be announced, CLUB ODYSSEY is set to be an explosive closing finale to Transform 23.
