Tempting Failure 2018


TF18 - Biennial of International Performance Art & Noise

9th - 22nd July - Croydon, South London

A showcase of over 70 artists representing 20 different countries comes to Croydon this July, each responding to the provocation of fractured bodies. 

Join a multitude of events, performances, talks and more. Taking place in a host of venues including Matthews Yard, The Front Room, Turf Projects, The Spread Eagle Theatre, Braithwaite Hall, David Lean Cinema and the  Croydon Council Chamber.  

It gives me so much pride to ensure that the festival will be exclusive to Croydon this year. Hosting such a wealth of local, national and international talent in my home town means a lot to me personally.
— Dr. Thomas John Bacon, Artistic Director
