Performance Platform is a diverse artist led organisation focused on providing a regular live platform for performance art.
It provides a supportive inclusive environment and encourages intergenerational dialogue by working with emergent, mid career and established artists.
It doesn’t impose curatorial themes on artists, it sees its role as facilitating and supporting artists to share their work and to develop new audiences for that work.
Performance Platform was established during the pandemic. It offered the first Covid secure performance art events in London. Performance Platform is now programming regular events to support cultural recovery and to encourage wider audience engagement.

Radage’s practice reaches beyond the body and its political histories to a spiritualism that grasps towards other than human terrains. This piece explores the need for interspecies’ communication and the healing of the mother wound. Radage has shown their work throughout the UK as well as Italy, Germany, Austria, Colombia, Chile and India. They have been supported by The British Council and Arts Council England and have taught at Universities on Fine Art and Theatre courses. They are one half of the collaboration Radage ▽ Hardaker with Ro Hardaker. Radage is currently making work at the intersection of Neurodivergent experience and Shamanic practice.
