  • ABOUT LIFT

    LIFT explodes across the city every two years in June.

    Since 1981 LIFT has been pioneering new forms of theatre, presenting spectacular performances and moments of magic in every corner of the capital. A year-round programme culminates in the world-renowned biennial festival that transforms the city into a stage.

    Led by Guest Artistic Director, David Binder, LIFT 2018 took place from 25 May to 22 July and celebrate community in all its forms, with work taking place from the Royal Court Theatre and Bernie Grant Arts Centre to the Tower of London and Thamesmead.

    LIFT HAS DONE MORE TO INFLUENCE THE GROWTH AND ADVENTURE OF ENGLISH THEATRE THAN ANY OTHER ORGANISATION WE HAVE.
