Recent world events significantly altered the way in which performance is shared and communicated. The response of Performance N’ Tha was to pause, and when many venues and performance spaces re-opened, we decided to wait; safety was our utmost priority. Collective care is a shared responsibility, yet its value is so often overlooked. After two years of being completely grounded to a halt, we are now excited to announce that we are finally back and will be sharing an in person event for our sixth instalment of SPILL YER TEA.
Performance N’ Tha is seeking proposals from five artists for the SPILL YER TEA event, which will take place on Saturday 20th August 2022 at The Tapestry in the heart of Liverpool’s Fabric District.
Performance N’ Tha centres accessibility and as such SPILL YER TEA will be interpreted into British Sign Language, venues will be disability friendly and accessible and a designated quiet space will be provided for neurodivergent individuals. In addition, we will also be asking all visitors to wear a face mask (unless exempt) to ensure those who are vulnerable can also attend and be a part of our event without feeling compromised. “We are all dependent on each other, and only by nurturing these interdependencies can we cultivate a world in which each and every one of us can not only live but thrive.” (The Care Manifesto, The Politics of Interdependence)
Performance N’ Tha is interested in hearing from performance artists at all levels of experience. We provide a warm welcoming and supportive environment for emerging and established artists and collectives and groups to share new artwork that is either ready-to-go, or is in its developmental stages.
