Tetrad presents: Here & Now

  • Attenborough Arts Centre (map)

Here & Now is an open weekend of live performance, music, film, workshops and discussions brought to you by local artists to celebrate diversity in performance and to explore how to begin and sustain an arts practice. Here & Now is an opportunity to encounter local artists and hear about how they make and work. You might kick off the weekend with dancing some unfamiliar moves followed by chatting to Tetrad over lunch, co-writing with a group upstairs, sliding into a one-to-one performance, asking a question in an artist talk, catching a film screening outside, taking a seat in the main hall for a live performance and ending the day chilling out to music in the cafe!

Join us for the whole weekend or drop-in to workshops and performances as much as you can!



Tickets are available to reserve a seat for the evening performances and for access to the full day of Here & Now activities on both Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th.
Please book through Attenborough Arts Centre box office via their website or call on: 0116 252 2455
Here & Now day activities including workshops, film screenings, talks and performances will be available to those with tickets and open on a first come, first serve basis so make sure to arrive in good time. 

All Here & Now events are PAY-WHAT-YOU-DECIDE which means you don’t have to pay until you have taken part in the workshop or seen the show. 
Please be aware, every penny you give will go directly to the artists involved so please do give generously. Thank you!
