Crossing the Line Festival Online
Crossing the Line is a partnership of six theatre companies across Europe including Galway’s Blue Teapot Theatre Company representing Ireland, whom are all leaders in the field of working with learning disabled artists. For September to late November, Crossing the Line Festival brings these companies together in an online theatre festival, celebrating inclusive art and artists with learning disabilities. This has been made possible due to the project Trasna Na Líne, funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
Crossing The Line Online Festival showcases more than 25 events – including theatre performances, documentaries, talks and feature films from six European companies celebrating inclusive art and artists with learning disabilities.
Artistically led and committed to meeting the new challenges of producing and touring theatre made by learning disabled and non-disabled theatre makers, their aim is to:
bring their artists together to learn from and with each other; engage with creative and audience development processes; develop connections with a wider network of European theatre companies with a focus on learning disabled artists; and create a showcase festival.
The main language of the festival is English and performances in French, Swedish, Dutch and Polish will be subtitled in English.
ALL EVENTS ARE FREE! Tickets/access to screenings is via a dedicated festival website
