Here’s what to look out for in the run up to TF18 this summer.

We have a packed programme of performance art events and opportunities coming up in the next few months,  culminating in our festival events in July. 

Our provocation for TF18 is Fractured Bodies. Read more about what this means to us.

As always, Tempting Failure is dedicated to radical, transgressive and under-represented work that explores risk and challenges preconceptions. Find out more about us and the work we programme.
