TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU: Love Letters To A (Post)Europe

Lisa Alexander and guests  

Toynbee Studios
28 Commercial Street
E1 6AB

7pm both nights. £14/£11 concessions per night or £20/£18 concessions for both.

In the midst of rapid change, polarisation and crises of social imagination locally and globally, small acts of imagination and friendship become radical interventions. TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU is an urgent gathering of love and dissent that seeks to connect, exchange and witness through performance and assembly, and through the action, idea or form of a love letter. 

A critical mass of over twenty artists from the UK, mainland Europe and beyond come together in a programme of performed responses over two evenings including commissioned work with artists travelling from Athens, Paris, Chicago and within the UK to perform. 

Artist line-up:

This two day programme builds on Love Letters to a (Post)Europe at Bios, Athens in which 26 artists created short works in response to a provocation at the close of 2015. A selection of these works also forms part of the 2018 programme to be witnessed in the UK for the first time and some for the first time as live performance.

Responses span the spectrum of performance and the letter form including dance, text, spoken word, song and experimental hybrid forms.

"Love Letters to a (Post)Europe connects artistic practice and intervention with solidarity, as a mode of visibility."
– Diana Damian Martin, Exeunt Magazine 2015 

On 4 October, Live Art Development Agency are hosting the launch of the 'TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU' book, with an evening of discussion and open letters. Find out more online.
