Fancy entering Spring in weird and strange mode? Looking for a different way to spend the glorious Easter weekend? Like the idea of a browsing round a live tattooing, exploring unseen parts of the London Bridge vaults and witnessing a live video installation unroll on a naked body? Maybe youâ€™ve got spring fever and, frankly, need help or maybe youâ€™re due a visit to SPILL, a brand new festival of experimental theatre and performance taking place over 3 weeks at the Barbican, the Soho Theatre, South Bank Centre, Shunt Vaults and Toynbee Studios.
The artists involved in SPILL push the boundaries of art and media to boggle your mind. You may not have seen anything like it before. It may not be comfortable, it may not be safe, you might not get it but safe to say Londonist, being always at the forefront of such multi-media artsy fartsy madness, will be there to report back and share your confusion. Rather smashingly, the festival is also hosting feasts each week giving you, bemused Londoners, a chance to ask the artists what on earth itâ€™s all about and chow down on some tasty morsels. Plus, the curious Shunt bar, squirrelled away in London Bridge Station, will be open to ticket holders as the festival bar and hub.
Find out whatâ€™s going on here. See you there!
SPILL is being produced by internationally acclaimed experimental theatre company Pacitti Company and funded by the Arts Council England, London.
