We have four different Go See opportunities for promoters in early 2016.

Manipulate Visual Theatre Festival / Edinburgh / 29 Jan – 6 Feb 2016
“One of Scotland’s most interesting festivals…Manipulate… has developed a reputation for showcasing innovative work from around the world in visual theatre and animation. A project of Puppet Animation Scotland, Manipulate casts its net far wider than traditional puppetry to bring in the best work from overseas in genres ranging from contemporary puppetry and animation to physical and aerial theatre.” The Scotsman
Federation of Scottish Theatre’s Market Day at Emporium / Musselburgh / 3 Mar 2016
FST’s Market Day at Emporium includes a range of networking and promotional opportunities including Open Exchange and scheduled face-to-face sessions with companies who are available for touring within the next 6-12 months. As Full Member’s of FST, we have been allocated 3 places at Market Day.
British Dance Edition / Cardiff / 17 Mar 2016
British Dance Edition 2016 hits Wales from 15 to 18 March 2016, bringing a diverse programme of quality British dance to Cardiff and Newport. They have introduced a one-day pass for new dance promoters on Thu 17 March. The one-day pass starts from 12pm onwards and coincides with the Trade Fair, the busiest day of the event, and provides opportunity to see work, connect with artists and promoters and celebrate the showcase at the festival party.
What is Go See?
Go See provides promoters with financial support so that they can attend a range of performances and events, including festivals, industry showcases or events at other Touring Network venues.
The scheme provides an invaluable opportunity for promoters to widen and develop their professional knowledge, creative appreciation and to better understand and engage with the work of their peers.
