Our annual micro-festival that brings our programme to life!
This year we’re filling our building with performances by artists from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the UK in a performance art intensive.
The Tetley Weekender will be the culmination of a week long performance art intensive, taking over our gallery spaces from 31 July – 4 August. The Tetley will function as a laboratory to incubate new works and collaborations with twelve artists, six based in South Asia and six based in the UK an open weekend of performance and talks. Over the weekend, participating artists will be invited to present existing work, and, or, present work resulting from new collaborations. An accompanying series of talks and open workshops, will be programmed in discussion with participating artists and leaders exploring performance today in the UK and South Asia, unpicking influences from visual art, theatre and dance.
A full programme activity is to be announced soon, please check back at a later date for more information.
The Tetley Weekender performance programme is supported by Arts Council England funded project New North And South, a network of eleven arts organisations across the north of England and south Asia.
