TULCA is delighted to present NEUTRAL, its 12th Festival. This year’s theme invites the audience to question for what and for whom they give their time; is it to technology, to being busy, to being passive, to being active? Can all of these things co-exist? TULCA itself strives for neutrality within its organisation; with the majority of its funding spent on programming rather than operative costs, and with equal pay for equal work to all artists. Although independent, it also relies heavily on others; partners, staff, volunteers, artists and of course, its audience. We have given you the map and the manifesto to find a neutral space for yourself; a space that is active without being busy, a space that is silent without being abandoned. All you have to do is find it.
