Present : Tense / Thirteen


The toughest creative challenge in town is back at Southwark Playhouse on Sunday 22 November 2009.

Present : Tense challenges the UK's top artistic talent to tackle the hottest topic of the moment in just seven days, in collaboration with other artists from different disciplines.

The full line-up will be announced right here on the blog very soon.

The groups meet on Sunday 15 November to select the most momentous story on the news agenda. They then have seven days to create a piece of work that responds to the story they choose before it is performed live exactly one week after they began.

Throughout the week you can follow their progress over on the present : tense blog where the artists will be posting daily updates. Click on 'Comment' below and have your say too. And you can follow events live on Twitter.

Meantime, quick, book your ticket!
