LIVE is curated by Barrel Organ from an open call out. 

Emerging and under-represented artists from across the country will test up to 20 minutes of material in front of an audience.

Expect a night of entertainment, designed to make you question what live performance can be. And this year, for the first time, LIVE will be delivered in a hybrid digital-live format.


You’ll be a key player in offering feedback as a live audience. Previous LIVE performances have been developed into shows at Royal Exchange, Manchester, Battersea Arts Centre and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


Supported by Arts Council England.


Performances will be captioned and audio described.

Next up: LIVE at The Holbeck, Leeds. Saturday 29th January 2022. In-person and online tickets available.
