Claire Cunningham Projects and NTS: Lessons learnt from Thank You Very Much Tour

15:00–16:30 on 09.03.22

In November - December 2021, Claire Cunningham Projects and National Theatre of Scotland embarked on a 5-city European tour of Claire Cunningham’s acclaimed dance-theatre piece Thank You Very Much. Already delayed from 2020 due to COVID-19, the tour to Switzerland, Sweden and Germany was the company’s first post-Brexit and mid-pandemic international touring work.
 
Join some of the team behind the project to discuss the challenges and opportunities of European touring in the current climate, including:

  • COVID, Brexit and access practicalities on tour
  • Artistic adaptation of work to fit in with COVID restrictions
  • Artistic development of an alternative to the physical show
  • Travelling internationally with a baby and navigating PIPA support
  • Partnership working between a national company and independent artist.

The team will share what we learned and what we’ll do differently next time.
