The SPILL Festival of Performance will make full use of the Barbican with a dynamic programme of events. Continuing the momentum of 2009’s extensive line-up, this biennial festival of experimental theatre and live art is renowned and recognised as one of the most highly anticipated artist-led events on the international performance calendar.

Initiated in 2007 by UK based artist/performer Robert Pacitti, SPILL features world premieres and SPILL commissions, showcasing a combination of established and emerging artists during the festival’s week-long run. This year’s festival has been curated by Pacitti around notions of ‘infection.’
