An Expanded Arts Festival for the Future

In Between Time’s 9th International Festival, IBT21 THE RUPTURE, celebrates the incredible resilience and creativity of artists.

We invite you to dive into the alchemy of live global gatherings and the rawness of live performance. IBT21 THE RUPTURE explores how artists and audiences are foretelling the future.

Across oceans and time zones, at home, on screens, in theatres and outdoors, bring your wild imaginations, your unruly minds and bodies. Expect blended live and digital performances, international conversations, encounters with strangers, forest diving, and parties for the end of the world.

Our full programme includes urgent artistic voices and UK premieres by world leading artists Mammalian Diving Reflex, Muneera Pilgrim and 600 Highwaymen (in partnership with Norfolk & Norwich Festival).

In the midst of the unimaginable, the labour of artists has brought vital hope and connectedness. In Between Time invites you to grasp this moment with us as new possibilities for how we work and live come into view.

“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.” Arundhati Roy
