For one night only! 30 of the most exciting artists working across visual art, film, music, dance and theatre each give a two-minute performance that follows a light dinner of soup and tart, in the spirit of Jean Dupuy’s legendary 1974–75 events at The Kitchen, New York.

Line up of artists include:
Bad-girl performance art legend Penny Arcade; pioneering artist Christian Marclay, whose work explores the connections between visual and audio cultures; Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed; investigatory pop/electronic composer and performer Simon Bookish and the spectacular contemporary dance choreographer Frauke Requardt.

Artist Edwina Ashton whose work includes illustration, film and home-made insect costumes also contributes along with mime artist and alternative drag scene favourite Ryan Styles; visual artist/fantastical performance-maker Tai Shani; artist and film-maker Mark Aerial Waller and dance and performance collective Dog Kennel Hill Project.
