LIFT 2024 Programme

Welcome to LIFT 2024 from Kris Nelson

Every two years, LIFT brings joyful, daring and unforgettable theatre from around the world to London, using the whole city as our stage. We are delighted to share LIFT 2024 with you!

Through a collection of eight unforgettable performances running from 5th June – 27th July, LIFT 2024 will take you on journeys that are deep and personal. It’s a line-up that will catch your breath, spark your mind and rev up your imagination. There’s adrenaline too. It’s international theatre for your gut.

In this year’s festival, two themes emerge: The Personal is Epic. Personal accounts of justice, exile and protest take on mythic proportions through barrier-breaking storytelling. LIFT artists will also… Play The Future, Play The Past. You’ll find shows that reframe our history and bring a wild imagination to what tomorrow might be by offering feasts for the mind and by plunging you into sensation.

We wish you a powerful festival experience full of discovery, dialogue and fun. Look forward to seeing you there!
