For this edition of Slow Sunday, Steakhouse have collaborated with Swiss Festival Les Urbaines, to invite them to curate a platform of Swiss Live Art within the programme. Les Urbaines is a Swiss festival based in Lausanne that explores emerging and daring aesthetics mixing visual, sound-based and performative forms. Through this collaboration and with support from Pro Helvetia, we are excited to present works by Swiss based artists Tamara Alegre and Ceylan Öztrük.

Audiences will be able to come and go as they please for most of the performances but some of the rooms will have a maximum capacity and there will be a one in, one out system in place if they get full. It is a large programme spanning across one day, we recommend taking your time and making your own individual journey. Part of the joy of this type of event is that you get to curate your experience. You won’t see everything and that’s ok.

A temporary Study Room with materials from the Live Art Development Agency’s library looking at specific themes related to the Slow Sunday event will also be open throughout the day.

Steakhouse Live are looking for volunteers for the event. If the ticket price is a barrier or you just wish to donate your time to help make this event happen, please email Tink on for more information.
