In June opens the new edition of the LIFT Festival - Performance, Politics, Pop Culture. Led by artistic director Marc Ball, LIFT 2016 runs from June 2nd until July 2nd, 4 weeks of events exploding across the city.
This new edition is their most ambitious festival yet, with work taking place everywhere, from the Barbican and Saddlers Wells to East End graveyards and Historic Music halls.
"We've travelled the world to curate a very special playlist of performances, politics, and pop-culture for London, so go on - Press Play" Marc Ball.
Created in 1981, LIFT has been pioneering new forms of theatre, offering spectacular performances and moments of magic in every corner of London. A year-round program culminates in the world-known biennal festival that transforms the capital into a stage.
This year program includes works by Neil Bartlett, Krzysztof Warlikowski, Fernando Rubio, Andrew Schneider, Clare Patey, Toco Nikaido, Lola Arias, Inne Goris, Dominique Pauwels, Rosemary Lee, Simon Whitehead, Anthony Hamilton, Alisdair Macindoe and Taylor Mac.
