Transform is an engine room for powerful performance. We create exhilarating international festivals and work year-round to catalyse future-gazing artists and creatives to reimagine what theatre can be. We bring Bold, Brave, Vivid & Socially Conscious international performance to the Leeds City Region and beyond. The next Transform festival will take place in a variety of venues and spaces across Leeds in 2025.

Community Engagement is a huge art of what we do at Transform. The Guardian said “International festivals can easily feel detached from their host city. In bringing together artists from all over the world, the local gets lost in the mix. But at Transform, the character of Leeds is baked into the programme.”

“It was a very transformative experience for me. As I had never done anything like that so was completely out of my comfort zone but felt completely safe.” – Participant of Cherish Menzo’s Rap Choir workshop alongside her performance of DARKMATTER in Transform 23.

We are part of Arts Together because we value collaboration with partners in the city and we are committed to making a difference in Leeds through working with brilliant artists and communities.
