Artists from across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond come together in an evening of performed responses and short performance with works by Kate Adams, Season Butler, Robin Deacon, Tim Etchells (video short), Catherine Hoffmann, Tim Jeeves, Mikhail Karikis (video short) and Xristina Penna, and The Stop Shopping Choir sends an invitation to assemble from the streets of New York.

In the midst of rapid change, polarisation and crises of social imagination locally and globally, small acts of imagination and friendship become radical interventions. TO YOU TO YOU TO YOU is an urgent gathering of love and dissent that seeks to connect, exchange and witness through performance and assembly, and through the action, idea or form of a love letter.

Part of a programme of events across the UK that builds on Love Letters to a (Post)Europe at Bios, Athens in which 26 artists created short works in response to a provocation at the close of 2015. A selection of these works also forms part of the 2018 programme to be witnessed in the UK for the first time and some for the first time as live performance.

Responses span the spectrum of performance and the letter form including dance, text, spoken word, song and experimental hybrid forms.

“Love Letters to a (Post)Europe connects artistic practice and intervention with solidarity, as a mode of visibility.”
– Diana Damian Martin, Exeunt Magazine 2015
