Virtual Collaborators Festival
Grounds of St John’s church in Leytonstone Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 September
The Virtual Collaborators Festival was founded to inspire artists to explore what is possible within the constraints that the coronavirus has imposed on British arts.
Since July 2020, 32 teams of actors, directors, and writers have been working together to create 32 new pieces of art under lockdown conditions which will be shared as part of the Virtual Collaborators Festival from 17-31 August.
Selected shows from the online festival will then be performed live as part of a 2-day celebration of new theatre at St. John's Church in Leytonstone on September 12 and 13, 2020.
This Festival is produced by Danusia Samal, founder of the Virtual Collaborators Network, and Olivia Munk, Artistic Director of Part of the Main Productions.
All ticket proceeds will be donated to the #AllOfUs Emergency Response Fund, which is 'a ground-breaking and unprecedented initiative that has been developed from the urgent need to support our Black, Asian, ethnically diverse and migrant colleagues in the cultural sector who are at high risk of redundancies, or who have already lost work because of COVID-19.'
The event will take place in the grounds of St John’s church.
