2016 Festival:
Sat 9 Jan > Sat 6 Feb

After 29 nights of memorable visual theatre, the curtain has come down on LIMF 2016.

It has been the longest and most successful edition in the festival’s history. Playing at venues across the capital, from the thousand-seater Barbican and Peacock theatres to specially adapted auditoria for more intimate audiences of twenty five at Tate Modern and five in the Southbank Centre’s Ladies Powder Room, the festival’s eighteen productions have attracted record audience numbers and substantial media coverage.

Our thanks to everyone concerned: artists, technicians, the festival team, our funders and supporters and to the LIMF audience - a remarkable 24,000 this year.

Now we prepare for the festival’s 40th anniversary in 2017 - watch this space!

LATEST NEWS - For the third consecutive year, a LIMF production has been nominated for an Olivier Award! Congratulations to Compagnie Yoann Bourgeois whose He Who Falls (Celui qui tombe) has been nominated for Best New Dance Production, and thanks to our co-presenting partner, the Barbican. More >
