Edinburgh Showcase 2013
We are thrilled to announce the list of companies which have been selected for Edinburgh Showcase 2013. For more information about the productions in this year's programme please check out the dedicated Edinburgh Showcase website.
With more than 180 submissions, we have curated a programme of work from across the UK including devised, visual and physical theatre; new writing; live art and installation; interactive and immersive theatre; and the largest number of dance pieces we have programmed to date. The Showcase will present these companies to an international delegation of programmers, showing the strength of UK performance to a new audience.
In the coming months, we will share the stories of our companies and their audiences on our blog, Twitter and Instagram. You can join in with their experiences, see what happens when they meet and hear their reactions to participating in the Edinburgh Fringe by becoming part of our network. Follow us on Twitter at @UKDramaDance and join the conversation on #EdShowcase.
