Arnolfini - est 1961

Sat 26 – Sun 27 April

Live Platform

I Am Still Your Worst Nightmare

Platform Pass £10.00/£8.00 concs

Last year’s platform, where 50 artists performed their own work for Arnolfini audiences, was such a success that we’re doing it again. I Am Still Your Worst Nightmare has been developed with Theatre Bristol to showcase new live art, experimental theatre, durational, installation and film work from new and established UK-based artists. Performances will be taking place throughout Arnolfini over the course of the weekend. For artists, this is a chance to show your work in front of up to 200 people; for audiences this is a chance to see a whole range of national and local artists. If you’re a new or established artist interested in showing your short new work go to for details of how to apply.

A Platform Pass gets you into all performances over the weekend as well as the Nightmare Party. However, entry to limited capacity events will be on a first come, first served basis. Durational performances and installations are open to all, including non-ticket holders. Full schedule will be available from 7 April.

Sat 26 Apr 8.30pm – 11.00pm
