British Council announced the 20th anniversary Edinburgh Showcase programme. Politics, pop culture and tragedy feature in the 20th anniversary Edinburgh Showcase, the British Council's biennial platform of contemporary UK performance alongside the Edinburgh Festivals on 21–26 August. It's the single biggest opportunity for UK theatre and dance companies to introduce their work to international promoters and the 2017 programme throws a fascinating spotlight on what's on the minds of UK artists today.
“It’s wonderful to see so many artists – more than 50% of the programme – taking part in the Showcase for the first time,” says Neil Webb, Director Theatre and Dance at the British Council. Read the full announcement on the British Council website.
