SPILL FestivalAn international festival of experimental theatre, live art and performances, SPILL Festival takes place in 6 venues across London - Toynbee Studios, Whitechapel Gallery, Barbican, National Theatre Studio, Soho Theatre and Netil House. First set up in 2007, the SPILL festival is a biannual event in London, branching out to include a second festival in Suffolk in 2012. In 2013 there are 36 events (86 individual performances) all brought together through the theme of 'contact', exploring issues of connection, exchange and advocacy. Highlights include The Salon Project, in which costumes have been made for each and every audience member so that they become part of the performance. Pacitti Company's On Landguard Point is screened for the first time in London, and keep an eye out for this year's SPILL Thinker in Residence Tim Etchells who is experiencing the festival through a series of daily correspondences.
