LUST was founded in 1992 by Jane Turner, Daniel Biro and K.M. Pennhalligon as an artist-led multi-arts organisation whose primary aim was to sidestep the middle-man and produce and promote multi-disciplinary performance events both at its home territory, London, U.K. and internationally, exploring ideas and influences from Cocteau to Chaos Theory, Musique Concrete to New Comedy, Dada to Digital Arts

Through an interdisciplinary programming strategy LUST reached new audiences for high quality performance work in areas such as contemporary music, dance, film and theatre in high-profile, well publicised events at cutting edge venues.
LUST's activities embraced a series of innovative productions/projects that have brought together a wide range of contemporary artists working across artistic media that have generated strong momentum and considerable public following.

LUST has not been active in the millennium as Biro and Turner's collaborative investigation into emergence theory took over: see www.unsafesound.com
