Physical Fest is Tmesis Theatre’s international physical theatre festival, based in Liverpool, UK. A 6-day festival presenting performance, workshops, a conference and bursaries for the creation of new work, with incredible international artists and UK premieres. A celebration of the rich variety of local, national and international contemporary physical work, the only festival of its kind in the UK. The festival is currently bi-annual, our next festival will be in JUNE 2021!
The festival, established in 2005, has attracted participants from all over the world, bringing the city and its spaces/venues alive, in a celebration of a variety of physical work through performance, workshops, debate, industry events and associated bursary, Tmesis Training Company, and participatory programmes.
Our ethos is to bring work that would not otherwise be seen in Liverpool, to explore, question, and encourage creativity, creating a valuable opportunity to see the latest developments across the world.
