Physical Fest is an international annual physical theatre festival in Liverpool in late May and is hosted by Tmesis Theatre company.
The festival hosts 9 days of unique workshops from internationally renowned practitioners, performances, street theatre, events, debate, networking and ‘Fest Live’, an showcase for new physical work. The festival also hosts the Young Fest Weekend in May, a weekend of performances and workshops for young people, and runs participatory projects throughout the spring as well as Tmesis Theatre Graduate Company: a graduate physical theatre training and performance project.
Physical Fest is the only festival of its kind in Europe that specialises solely in physical theatre, attracting participants and artists locally, nationally and internationally.
To come to the festival is a unique experience with a very warm, welcoming and creative atmosphere which transform the cities venues and spaces during the festival time. It has a mixture of work from local, national and international artists with an emphasis on work that hasn’t been to Liverpool or the UK before.
