As a tribute to visual theatre, it’s unrivalled, and this year’s line-up is as exciting as ever
Evening Standard

LIMF’s 40th anniversary festival closed on 4 February 2017, with another standing ovation for Charleroi Danse’s Kiss & Cry at the Barbican.

The festival featured 17 productions from around the world and a total of 120 performances in 9 London venues, plus film, symposium and visual theatre workshops. Almost all performances sold out. Take a look back at the Festival starting here > You can read some of the many reviews here >

Thank you to everyone who made LIMF 2017 such a success: our fantastic artists, our helpful venue partners, our brilliant production and management team, our core funder – Arts Council England, and the ticket-buying public who packed the theatres and gave the festival such a buzz.
