Abstract

GIFT is an annual international theatre festival that originally ran as a pilot event in April/May 2011 and took place again between 3rd - 6th May 2012. GIFT brings together new theatre makers from around the world for an immersive festival experience that encourages and promotes cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue and exchange. As Festival Director, I founded and curate/programme the festival. My key research interest here is focused on festivals as sites for collaboration, and is a direct progression from my doctoral resaerch into collaboration in performance practice. GIFT seeks to provide a platform and a network for new theatre makers and supports and promotes artist and audience development.

It is also delivered in collaboration with various partners and supporters including Gateshead Council, Gateshead College, ARC Stockton (anongst others) and has been supported by other pop-up activities at Live Theatre, and Northern Stage.
