IBT10 Festival

What Next For The Body

Dec 2010 – Feb 2011

'An affectionate portrayal of the city’s people and performers, our eccentricity and tenacity, our defiance, wonder and bravery.' VENUE MAGAZINE

A long autopsy thread stretches the length of a pure white gallery marking a fissure of absence through the heart of the building. A human-powered tarpaulin wave breaks across a city square, and 100 Bristolians create their own film of presence and strength.

IBT10 took place across the streets and art spaces of Bristol in a breakneck programme of live, digital, sound, sculptural, architectural, dance, theatre and guerrilla works. The 5-day festival showcased work by 115 artists from all over the world, including 28 works by artists from Bristol and the South West.
