A Piece of the Continent

london festival

As the UK prepares to exit the EU, The Actors Centre and Voila! Europe present a brand-new festival, A Piece of the Continent, celebrating cultural links and theatre from our neighbours from across Europe.

A Piece of the Continent (8-27 Apr) will be staged at The Actors Centre’s Tristan Bates Theatre, in the heart of London. The festival is designed to offer a platform for artists from across Europe as well as extending a welcome to EU citizens who may feel isolated or disenfranchised following the passing of Article 50. The festival will showcase theatre from Italian, French, Polish, Greek, German, Dutch, Lithuanian, Austrian and Spanish artists based in the UK or overseas.

The nine works, each an hour-long, will be staged over the three weeks of the festival, exploring themes including gender equality, freedom of expression and the laborious process of becoming a British citizen. Each will offer a taste of the rich variety of theatre and live performance being made by European artists today.
