Deadline: 18 May 2017
The British Council is currently inviting artists who are migrants, living anywhere in the world, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the British Council’s Edinburgh Showcase in this new project exploring place and migration.
For artists, this is an opportunity to reach international theatre audiences and a chance to take part in a shared experience with other practitioners who you might otherwise be unable to work with. The imaginary performances are never intended to happen in real life, but to exist in our imaginations through the artists’ words.
The founding principles of the Edinburgh Festivals are about providing a meeting point for people from different places to understand each other.
- Artists who are migrants: who live in a country that’s not where they were born. Artists based anywhere in the world, having some experience of working with performance are invited.
- Artists are not eligible to apply if they’re being presented in a live performance as part of Edinburgh Showcase 2017, or if they’re being given an individual platform in one of this year’s Showcase wraparound events.
