A showcase of the very best English theatre online
Digital Artist Showcase I Mon 11 & Tue 12 May
Open to registered delegates. For details contact Hannah Slimmon, International Producer
The caravan biennial showcase of English performance as part of Brighton Festival, has brought its 2020 programme to digital platforms in response to the coronavirus crisis. Shaped in the same spirit of informality and accessibility, the digitised showcase will test ways of developing an international dialogue that seeks to minimise the environmental cost of global travel associated with the event.
A series of live events will be hosted on Zoom for registered delegates including provocations from guest speakers, pitches of new work and one-to-one meetings with artists. Artist and writer Andy Field will provide a narration to the showcase by hosting caravan radio, a series of podcasts featuring interviews with the artists, audio excerpts and sound pieces with the intention of helping the delegates to deepen their understanding of the artists and their work in a creative way.
The showcase has been run by Farnham Maltings within Brighton Festival since 2008, and introduces a curated group of England’s brightest performance companies, to festival organisers and programmers from around the world; with the ambition of developing new partnerships, collaborations and ways of working.
