Out of Touch: A Festival of Intimacy is a day-long festival of intimate performances, conversations and interactions that responds to the themes of touch and intimacy, and asks what intimacy has meant whilst living through the Covid19 pandemic. Contributing work will be created by artists, UCL students and academics, and the event will take place across UCL’s Bloomsbury Theatre, Grant Museum, Petrie Museum and a variety of outdoor spaces in between. 

Whether you are a student, academic, artist or any combination of the three, we invite you to pitch ideas for the festival that responds to the themes, can work within social distance measures, and be open to being performed in unusual spaces across the UCL Culture venues.

We are interested in small scale work which has a ‘pop up’ feel as well as large scale ideas. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary pieces and those which push you and the audience out of comfort zones. We are open to all types of performance from dance, theatre, music, spoken word and poetry, circus, comedy, multimedia as well as talks and facilitated conversations. 

This is a funded opportunity and the application deadline is 9am on Friday 26 February 2021. The Festival is due to take place on Sat 19 June 2021.
