Bristol's breakneck festival of live art and intrigue returns this December across the sites and spaces of Bristol
A man covers white walls with kisses. A woman weaves strange creatures into her hair. Sound infiltrates the basement of an iconic building, and a fragile light blinks across the city. A stage fills with red paint and a woman punches herself with steak. A man is gently covered in gold leaf as two performers create a human wave machine.
From the 1-5 Dec 2010 Inbetween Time Festival of Live Art and Intrigue will be pervading streets, sites and art spaces across the city of Bristol. Over 75 events involving 130 artists from Mexico, Australia, Austria, Serbia, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, USA and all over the UK will make up a breakneck programme of live, digital, sound, sculptural, architectural, dance, theatre and guerrilla works across the five days.
The exhibitions and Live Art programme at Arnolfini will include major commissions and premières from Teresa Margolles, Zoran Todorovic, Kira O'Reilly, Jordan McKenzie and Hancock and Kelly.
Elsewhere in Bristol, at partner venues and sites across the city, including Circomedia, Wickham Theatre, Cube, Bristol Old Vic and Bridewell Island, will be new works by Richard Maxwell's NYC Players, Rajni Shah, Doris Uhlich, Ivana Müller, Manuel Vason, Blast Theory and Tim Etchells. There will also be premières from Action Hero, Back to Back Theatre and Duncan Speakman as well as the launch of a new project by Quarantine.
Throughout the five days there will be encounters with the best local Live Artists, cropping up in the most unexpected places across Bristol, and a packed diary of parties, networking events, artist talks and idiosyncratic happenings. Individual event tickets can be booked now through Arnolfini on +44 (0)117 917 2300/01 or at www.arnolfini.org.uk.
IBT is one of the UK?s most respected international festivals; playful at its heart, it revels in all things weird and wonderful.
