Leeds Beckett University and Compass Festival 2016 are delighted to present a symposium celebrating the work of Third Angel. Named after Third Angel’s internationally acclaimed show from 2000, Where From Here is a day of performances, papers and films celebrating 21 Years of performance making by Third Angel and the impact and influence they have had on the territories of theatre, durational performance and live art. Part retrospective, part reflection and part celebration the day will feature contributions from artists, performance makers, writers and academics plus the premiere of new performance for camera pieces, the Small Celebrations.The symposium will reflect on the past, present and future of the company Third Angel. It is an opportunity to reflect on the company's journey, from making live art, durational performances and video art to their current theatre making practice and collaborations with other artists from around the world. It is a time to take stock of what they have achieved as they embark on their next 21 years. It is a chance to ask both artists and academics: ‘Where from here?’ and to celebrate the company's longevity and place this into context in the current political, economic and artistic climate.Established in 1995, Third Angel makes artwork that encompasses a range of disciplines. They use styles, techniques and interests discovered in experimental work for other spaces, to create new theatre that plays with conventional forms while remaining accessible to a mainstream audience. 'Where From Here: 21 Years of Third Angel' seeks to trigger a debate around the company’s work that offers a critical lens through which to explore theatre’s wider landscape for the next 21 years.
