SURGE’s Community Street Theatre Tour is available to book for festivals and events throughout the U.K. We offer a unique opportunity for festival/event organisers to bring our street theatre team to their local area to work with up to 50 members of the community. Since the tour started in 2012, we have reached over 25 locations and festivals, including Merchant City Festival, Inverness Street Theatre Festival, Surge Festival, Edinburgh College, John Muir Festival, Solas Festival and TOP Festival.
As well as experienced direction and training from our established Director and Stage Manager, we’ll provide up to 50 specially made costumes for the acts and will deliver exciting street theatre workshops in the lead-up to the festival, introducing participants to the basics of street performance. Participants then have the chance to perform the acts on site as part of the festival or event programme.
Please see our flyer below and contact Melanie Jordan at melanie[at]surge.scot or 0141 248 6910 for more details.
If you represent a community group or are an individual wishing to take part in our street theatre workshops, and you would like to find out when we will be coming to a festival near you, please contact us for a full list of our tour dates.
Participants must be aged 13+ (no upper age limit).
