SLAP Festival!

SLAP is a Pay-what-you-can Performance Festival in York.

SLAP (Social Live Art Performance) are delighted to share their programme of new performance works with you!  

SLAP is York’s pay-what-you-can contemporary performance festival. 

20th - 23rd February 2019 

Flaunting a bold assortment of dance, theatre, live art and cabaret performances from a cohort of distinguished local, national and international artists. SLAP performances will occur in 5 locations across the city (inclusing SPARK*) and will journey through themes of queerness, zombies, millennials and their predecessors, masculinity, connection and more. 

SLAP believe income should not be a barrier to accessing performance and therefore SLAP are making all events as part of the festival either free or pay-what-you-can.
