Horizon is a vibrant new performance showcase designed to celebrate visionary artists and cultural leaders, currently making performance work in England. Born out of a new approach to build deep and sustainable collaborations, Horizon aims to connect new work and ideas with international partners during the Edinburgh Festivals.
Taking on board the learnings from our 2021 pilot year, the 2022 and 2023 Horizon showcases will be curated via a series of distinct approaches responsive to the pandemic context we continue to live through.
The Horizon showcase will be a key part of the Edinburgh Festivals for one week during August in 2022 and 2023. For these iterations, the showcase will primarily involve live tour-ready performance works in Edinburgh, but digital wraparound activities will also be a significant strand of work.
Alongside Horizon’s activity in Edinburgh, we will also provide a series of Residencies for artists to test out new ideas, connecting ideas and projects at their earliest stage with international colleagues. Artist Bursaries are also a feature of the showcase plans.
