“Smart, witty & politically never more relevant. A must-see”


an event, a conversation, a meal: exploring difference, othering and belonging in the performing arts: 3 May

Breaking Bread: On Otherness at Lancaster Arts


Two Destination Language make contemporary performance that’s beautiful, arresting and relevant. We explore themes of identity, belonging and what happens when cultures collide. The results are live performances.

The work sits in theatre, live art, dance and performance contexts. Crossing those artistic boundaries is key to our practice. Led by artists Katherina Radeva and Alister Lownie, our work provokes questions about the place of each person in today’s society. As a Bulgarian and a Scot working together, we often start from our own experiences in exploring these ideas.

Based in the United Kingdom, where most of our work is made and shown, the company has also brought work to international audiences including New York (USA), Bytom (Poland), Dublin and Clonmel (Ireland), and Kiev (Ukraine).

In 2018, we’re developing ideas for a new piece. This means we won’t be touring any work in the spring; autumn will see both Manpower and Declining Solo in the UK: details will be announced later in the year.

We’d love to hear from you if you’d like to program or support our work.
