LIFT, London’s international festival of theatre, brings joyful, daring and unforgettable theatre from around the world to London, using the whole of the city as our stage.
Every two years, we present a festival full of bold and relevant culture, international perspectives, and thought-provoking performances. Whether it’s a much-loved venue, iconic landmark or unsung corner of London, LIFT gathers Londoners around incredible art.
Our mission is to create powerful, invigorating experiences that:
challenge artistic, political and social conventions
champion artist advancement at home and abroad
lead sustainable internationalism
celebrate and connect London to the world.
We engage and create communities around ideas and projects, connecting international artists and local artists to London, and together make incredible art happen.
