The Tetley Weekender
4-6 August 2017

Our annual micro-festival that brings our programme to life!

This year, twelve artists from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and the UK are taking over The Tetley for a weekend of performance art.

The Tetley Weekender will be the grande finale of the Performance Art Intensive: a week long intensive residency taking place in our galleries from 31 July – 4 August, culminating in a jam-packed weekend of music, dancing, live performances, talks and workshops over the weekend.

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 exploring performance today in the UK and South Asia, unpicking influences from visual art, theatre and dance.
