Physical Fest returns to the Liverpool City Region this summer for an 8-day extravaganza of live & online performance, conversation & workshops, brought to you by the city’s own Tmesis Theatre.
Highlights include award winning clown, Lucy Hopkins with her hilarious, Ceremony of Golden Truth, along with incredible circus/dance artists Joli Vyann who will perform a beautiful – and free – acrobatic piece outside Liverpool’s Metropolitan Cathedral.
The recently restored Albert Walker Hall – a beautiful hidden gem at the Linacre Methodist Mission in Sefton – is also set to take centre stage as the venue for an exciting new site-specific, immersive piece, created by Tmesis Theatre.
Built in 1909, the stunning Art Nouveau hall has been recently restored thanks to Heritage Lottery funding. Memoria – a poetic, visceral exploration of memory and nostalgia – will be the first event to take place in the new space since the restoration.
Other venues and locations for the 8-day long festival include the Unity Theatre and Toxteth TV.
