The Edinburgh Showcase is the single biggest opportunity for UK theatre and dance companies to introduce their work to international promoters. The 2019 programme throws a fascinating spotlight on what's on the minds of UK artists. There's a surge of performances questioning gender, identity, disability and race – with lots of female-led work. They’re all in Edinburgh as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe or the Edinburgh International Festival.
The influences of #MeToo and identity politics resonate strongly in this year's Edinburgh Showcase, the British Council's platform for contemporary UK performance alongside the Edinburgh Festivals on 19–24 August 2019.
Leading festival directors and theatre producers from Australia will travel to Scotland to attend Edinburgh Showcase in August 2019.
