We do INSTAL.
INSTAL's been going for 10 years. It's one of Europe's leading festivals of risk taking and experimentation in sound as it meets performance and art: unexpected, unbelievable gigs, events & experiences. INSTAL is changing. It's moving to The Tramway this November.
In the mean time, we're doing UNINSTAL.
It's a kind of taster. A preview. Like INSTAL, but maybe riskier. A set of FREE events that test out radical ideas with leading local and international artists: experimental musicians/ writers/ philosophers/ filmmakers/ organisers/ poets. A series of multi-part experiments, about certain ideas we'd like to know more about. Still like a gig, but also like something else.
Seven events (intense performances and gigs, revelatory films, performed installations, and the like): each a kind of non-closed circle; open-ended, unresolved and incomplete. A collection that doesn't add up, but always returns to sound, music and listening.
Come. And help us figure out where we might go nextâ¦
