x marks the spotLudus Festival Leeds is a series of performing arts events popping up to animate different parts of the city over 2014 and 2015.

Residents and visitors are invited to come out to play, to see what performance can do to enliven where it lands – and perhaps to share some reflections.

Running right through Ludus are two strands – Ludus Festival Leeds performances and LudusThinks events. So as well as going to performances, you can join a public debate on the value of culture.

Coming up in February 2015: The Weather Machine (Ludus Festival Leeds performance) by David Shearing and Scenographic City (Ludus Thinks discussion) with David Shearing, Slung Low and Invisible Flock

Past performances and events from 2014:

White Cane in the city centre

Aria at Bramley Baths

Life Boat at Cross Flatts

Performance, Place, Possibility symposium

Ludus is a festival of performance. But it’s not just that. Ludus means ‘play’ so it’s also about Leeds trying out different ideas about performance, what we might find and where we might find it, once we embrace the idea of ‘play.’
