Taking the festival theme literally, rephrasing the title and looking in depth at the lateral meaning of sense itself…Cease Producing Stimuli.


We bring together a collection of artists and performers to investigate the meaning behind these three words, they will ultimately fold in on each other and collapse and reform and collapse and reform with their inability to ‘cease’ or ‘stop’.


Festival Theme: Stop making Sense

Stop Making Sense is the starting point for 2019’s festival, which looks to surreal, playful and unruly art as a disruption to our current political climate of hostility and division. The title is borrowed from Talking Heads’ 1984 concert film of the same name.
