Nine new, tour-ready, performance works are to be presented in a range of digital settings, alongside seven new projects, supported as part of a ‘residency’ programme, which enables artists to play with new performance ideas across a range of formats and genres. The works across both the residencies and live performance strands celebrate artists who are working across performance disciplines and currently based in England - all born out of a new approach to build deep and sustainable collaborations internationally.
The performance programme includes works by choreographer and director Botis Seva, with BLKDOG, a haunting commentary on surviving adulthood as a childlike artist, as well as Future Cargo, the latest outdoor work by Requardt & Rosenberg. Janine Harrington is presenting her digital online version of the 2018 Screensaver Series, and installation artist Joshua Sofaer’s Opera Helps will use zoom to bring professional opera singers into audiences’ own homes for a one-to-one performance.
