Welcome to GIFT, the north east’s dedicated international festival for new theatre makers.
GIFT 2013 marks the third year of GIFT, and offers the most exciting range of performances and activities to date. The festival programme is packed full of new and established performance works created by regional, national and international artists.
Each year the unique festival setting of GIFT brings audiences and artists closer together to encourage lively conversations, and meaningful exchange, and as you look through the list of activities, you will realise there are lots of ways that you can get involved.
Don’t miss the opportunity to catch new performance works created by the next generation of theatre makers from across the UK and Europe in GIFTed, the strand of GIFT that celebrates the work of graduating and recently graduated students. Look out for the logo!
Make the most of the experiences the festival offers, whether that’s walking through Gateshead while listening to an audio-play; writing a letter to your MP; or taking part in a participatory group dance, there are lots of surprising events designed to keep you busy, and to above all, enjoy yourself!
Have fun and I look forward to seeing you there!
