The fourth annual Steakhouse Live festival entitled LONGER WETTER FASTER BETTER took place across three East London locations (Artsadmin, Rich Mix and The Yard Theatre) from the 14 – 16 of October 2016.
The festival was a chance for us to support and engage with the work of artists that we admire and that we believe should have a platform in London. As always, we deliberately embraced a diverse range of artistic practices with the work throughout the festival cutting across performance art, theatre, visual art, cabaret, sculpture, dance, drag, club, participatory performance and more.
We were honoured to have the opportunity to present the work of these remarkable artists and we were equally thrilled that so many people joined us for the ride!
Above you can view a selection of images taken by the festival photographers Julia Bauer and Manuel Vason plus a short promo video of the whole weekend by the filmmaker Dasa Raimanova. Below is a longer edit of the promo film by Dasa plus interviews from a selection of artist and writers.
Written responses to the performances as part of the Steakhouse Live: Writing pilot project led by Diana Damian Martin and Bojana Jankovic can be found on the Critical Interruptions website and a pre-festival reflective article on the project and writing about Live Art in general is available to read in Exeunt Magazine.
The full Steakhouse Live Festival 2016 programme is also available to view on our website.
