The festival started in 2012 at The Old Hairdressers and has now grown and shifted to The Pearce Institute in Govan. We totally love being at The Pearce Institute as it has been a community centre for over 100 years, and still is! Last year’s festival was a total joy, with about 60 performances ranging from studio performances to durational body-based performances, one-on-one pieces and outdoor work. It will be similar again this year and we can’t wait to invite you in.

The whole festival runs on a ‘pay-what-you-can’ system and you don’t need to book any tickets in advance. There will also be great food served all day from local Govan eatery, Cafe 13! We will be releasing a full brochure with all artist and show info in late March, which you’ll be able to find on our website.

This year we have particular plans and resource to help absolutely everyone attend and enjoy the festival and we are placing a lot of work into increasing the accessibility of the event. We will have PAs, BSL interpreters and more who are available to help. You can call us on: 07834751536 to speak directly with us about any questions you have.

We always aim for //BUZZCUT// to be a place that you can basically just turn up and be looked after with warmth, inspiration and comfort!

//BUZZCUT// is a collaboration between two artists in Glasgow dedicated to creating exciting, supportive environments for artists and audiences to experiment with live performance.

//BUZZCUT// looks to open up new spaces for performance to happen, to bring new audiences to live art, and to create new opportunities for artists to make and share work.

//BUZZCUT// is about sharing; sharing food, sharing ideas and support, opening up doors and sharing homes.

//BUZZCUT// is about knowing we can be lateral… and actively disobeying hierarchies.

The line-up is always half Scotland-based artists and the other half from across the world. We’re super excited about all the work in the programme and to name just a few, this year includes work from: Nic Green and Tam McGarvey, Mary Coble, Fallope and The Tubes, FK Alexander, Gavin Krastin, Antonija Livingstone and many, many more!
