70/30 Split (UK)

Dressed ready for a riot and dancing distorted folk dances of times gone by; four performers are caught between different notions of masculinity.

bYOB stages contrasting versions of bravado and belonging, and reflects on the rise of nationalism and mob mentality. Four men grapple with their roles in the performance and the world.

70/30 Split is comprised of Lydia Cottrell and Sophie Unwin, a female performance duo who choreograph satirical and provocative dance through words, singing and stomping.

“Cottrell and Unwin are as touching as they are resolutely fearless.”
– The Guardian

Presented at Riley Theatre as part of Transform 19 - A Festival of Powerful, International Performance -

Tickets - £13/£8

L19 - Juicebox with Tommy Cash and Yves Tumor

JUICEBOX returns to L19 for one night of cult-queer art-club hedonism with TOMM¥ €A$H and Yves Tumor.

Over the years, LiveArt Bistro have gained notoriety for their take on late-night soirees – capturing the attention of some of the world’s most radical and boundary-breaking performers in the process.

JUICEBOX at Live Art Bistro proves no exception. Housed in the Festival Village, this closing party is set to raise the bar – despite what Leeds has come to expect in the fluid playgrounds of the city’s underground performance/party scene.

L19 Cube @ The Village
Afterparty @ Live Art Bistro

Across his work, Identity, Displacement & Destiny are recurring themes in which he also tries to mix the old with the new.
