Next in Line

Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th February 2017

CUT Festival are excited to present a unique programme of new work by five UK artists. 

Supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, Next in Line was a commissioning opportunity that invited emerging artists to submit new or existing work across multiple creative fields to develop and present at CUT Festival in 2017. 

Artists have used this opportunity to research and consider themes including the politics of barbering, gender, history, ritual, barbershops as social and cultural sites, the craft of barbering, tools, training, visibility and connection.

This year’s Next in Line programme will take place in local sites of East London across the first weekend of the CUT Festival programme. 

Special thanks to the Lois Keidan, Gill Lloyd, Jon Opie, Anna Goodman and Dr Belinda Fenty for their support in selecting the successful proposals.
