OPEN CALL for Live Art Bistro’s first Arts Council Funded Project: Performing Britain


Performing Britain is a 24hr live art, performance marathon exploring what British identity might look like post-Brexit. Presented at the moment of the UKs exit from the EU on 29 March 2019. This is a once in a lifetime event that seeks to nurture a dialogue around Brexit that politicians and the media have failed to deliver.

Performing Britain will present a programme of 24 performances by emerging & established artists from the UK & across Europe. Performances will be presented alongside screenings, exhibitions and talks. We will will hold space for round tables and more informal discussions to take place.

Performing Britain will run from 6PM Friday 29th March 2019 to 6PM Saturday 30th March 2019 at venues across the Mabgate area of Leeds.

Curated and produced by Live Art Bistro, in partnership with organisations across Leeds and supported by Arts Council England.

We are interested in hearing all ideas but are particularly interested in work that is one to one, durational, roaming or repeatable. We are keen to hear about work that takes risks, presents under represented perspectives and view points, work that challenges assumptions and intolerance, work from all sides of the Brexit sphere.
