Enter the Storm
12-22 February 2015
“From fog-covered bridges to vogueing and Virginia Woolf, the winds of change were blowing around the city.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
IBT15 invited audiences to take a walk in the clouds, experience a storm in a club and follow us into the shadows for a concert in a gothic mansion.
Extraordinary theatre, music, dance, live art, exhibitions, talks, parties, public art works and night walks took over Bristol. Taking Storm as the theme, the festival celebrated art as a powerful force for change. The festival brought artists & audiences from 33 different countries with 132 showings of 32 different events, enabling 190,885 Audience Experiences in Bristol.
