Tmesis Theatre will be taking a year break from their annual international festival, Physical Fest 2018.

‘The festival has grown dramatically over the past three years, which has been fantastic, we have supported numerous local artists as well as bringing high quality national and international work to Liverpool that hasn’t been seen here before. This increase in scale means we have to take a break in order to have the time to raise the funds that are now needed to make it happen, and develop exciting new ideas, coming back refreshed and raring to go in 2019!

We won’t be going away though, as Tmesis will be developing an exciting new show in 2018 with the Unity Theatre, and we will be running the Tmesis Training Company as well as some, one off Physical Fest specials… watch this space: sign up to our mailing list/Twitter/Facebook for updates and do get in touch if you are interested in working with/ supporting Physical Fest in the future.

We would love to hear your ideas for future festivals, so do get in touch!Thanks to our wonderful team, partners, funders and to you for your support!’
