The productions in the 2015 Edinburgh Showcase comprised of theatre and dance; including new writing, devised and physical theatre, live art, installation and interactive. The Showcase curatorial panel included international programmers, UK arts professionals and members of the British Council’s Theatre and Dance team. The programme was presented to a delegation of visiting international programmers at the Edinburgh Festivals, so that a new global audience experienced British performances.
