WEEK 53 2020

The Lowry's interdisciplinary cross-arts festival

WEEK 53 is a biennial festival that commissions, produces and presents bold and brilliant contemporary art and theatre that takes over our home in Salford and found spaces across our community. In 2020, it will run from Friday 24 April to Sunday 3 May.

The programme will explore the theme of ‘Power’ and will challenge, question and interrogate structures and hierarchies in our current social and political landscape, across prescribed gender roles, and in media and culture. Who has power? Can power be distributed differently? How do historic power dynamics still influence today’s realities?
