SPARK is an annual festival of exciting new performance & art at Tobacco Factory Theatres presented by early career artists. Join us for a night of Love Beyond Valentine’s, produced by BLUEPRINT.
Back for the first time since 2019, SPARK will be an antidote to Valentine’s Day – an exploration of unconventional love in all its forms. We want to hear and see any art that explores love outside of the forced binary of Saint Valentine – whether that be platonic love, collective care, queer love, love for your dog, love for your sister, love for yourself, love for your favourite flavour crisp! If you love it, we want you to share it!
“I’m also just a girl, standing in front of an audience, asking them to love her meal deal choice” – Notting Hill (mostly)
BLUEPRINT are a cohort of emerging producers who are committed to creating opportunities to showcase up-and-coming Bristol artists in a kind and accessible way. BLUEPRINT is designed to give a route into producing for those who wouldn’t normally get the chance, and we want to do the same for the artists at SPARK.
Tobacco Factory Theatres would like to thank Noel Coward Foundation and St James’s Place Charitable Trust for their ongoing support of our BLUEPRINT programme and SPARK 2023.
