LIFT is London’s international biennial festival of theatre. LIFT stands for radical empowerment and inclusion. We promote the power and urgency of international perspectives, understanding that difference makes us stronger. LIFT is where artists and audiences meet for necessary conversations and essential cultural experiences. The theatre we offer audiences is compelling, meaningful, provocative, excellent, topical, singular. We advance contemporary thought, introduce new forms and ideas and offer new ways of experiencing art. Every two years, LIFT presents a festival full of daring and relevant culture, international perspectives and unforgettable theatre. LIFT is the essential link between leading international artists and London and the UK. We connect British makers abroad. We engage and create communities around ideas and projects connecting leading artists to locals and together we make incredible art happen.
