“I've picked out Declan as particularly exciting highlight, but there are a host of other no less appealing prospects in the Traverse Festival this year. Matilda Ibini, who wrote Little Miss Burden which played at the Bunker last summer, has written Shielders: about what happens when lock down ends but not everyone can venture out. Debbie Hannan, a former associate at the Bunker, directs. Also check out The Breakfast Plays, a series of new works from rising writers that in previous years have produced some crackers and are likely to do the same here.”
Here you can find information on all the Festival productions, events and activities currently available in Traverse 3 - our new online venue, which will be a permanent space alongside our physical stages of Traverse 1 and 2.
There's a huge range of stories available, created for, or reimagined in, a variety of formats, including films, podcasts, audio plays, performed readings and open access scripts, as well as conversations and provocations for audiences to join.
We've commissioned a breadth of artists to create new pieces of work especially for this year's unique Traverse Festival programme, and are delighted to be working with many partner companies and creatives to present the most cutting edge and stirring shows around, including many world premieres.
Traverse 3 is a supportive space for audiences and artists alike to explore their creativity and see life through the eyes and experiences of others, at a time when seeking common ground to celebrate what we all share, and what makes us unique, could not be more important - and our series of Happenings have been designed for audiences to get actively involved in discussing and tackling some of our most pressing societal issues.
