6 - 10 November

This November, Experimentica, the key festival for presenting new performance, installation, film, video, sonic art, dance, theatre and interdisciplinary arts, celebrates its thirteenth birthday.




In true Experimentica style, it revels in a traditionally unlucky number.



If it wasn t for bad luck I d have no luck at all Albert King, Born Under A Bad Sign



During the five days of Experimentica, over thirty artists will be embracing and celebrating failure, risk, chance, the experimental, good and bad luck - from guided tours of the birthplaces of experimental performance to Elvis impersonators; abject storytelling to mythical folk law and on to inverted silent cinema; projections; music; comedy; pathos; lost ideas; burnt artwork and quite possibly a piano smashing.



Artists include: Kathryn Ashill, Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari, Richard Bowers, Tim Bromage, Roy Brown, Holly Davey, Cian Donnelly, Ben Ewart-Dean, Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau, good cop bad cop, S Mark Gubb, Samuel Hasler, Mamoru Iriguchi, Richard James & Anthony Shapland, Jerusalem In My Heart, Pil & Galia Kollectiv, Almut Linde, Nicholas McArthur & Robert Molly Vaughan, Mike Pearson & Heike Roms and more .
