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 Mark Ball (LIFT Artistic Director 2009 – 2017), LIFT 2016 took place from 1 June to 2 July and was our most ambitious festival yet, with work happening everywhere from the Barbican and Sadler’s Wells to and East End graveyard and historic Music Hall. Our next festival will take place across London in June 2018 and will be led by Guest Artistic Director, David Binder.
