Presenting festivals of performance from Leeds and internationally, whilst concocting projects with bold artists all year round, Transform presents theatre works everywhere from arts venues across Leeds, to city sites and outdoor spaces. Celebrating the independent and adventurous spirit of Leeds, we want to reflect the socially conscious and radical North, whilst connecting to the world.
Transform was originally established by West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2011. Setting out to reimagine what theatre can look like and what it can do, the annual Transform Festivals took place across the theatre building and outside its doors in a range of sites and spaces. Transform has now evolved as an independent organisation with a local and global outlook.
The next Transform Festival will happen in April 2017, at West Yorkshire Playhouse and citywide venues.
A series of trailblazer, teaser events will take place in 2016.
