Forest Fringe Satellites in Lisbon and London
In Lisbon, 17-19 February 2012, Forest will be collaborating with Culturgest to bring a host of Forest Fringe artists to Portugal, exploring unusual spaces across Culturgest’s remarkable home and filling them with performances, works-in-progress, intimate encounters and installations. The artists involved include Action Hero, Search Party, Kieran Hurley, Deborah Pearson, Tania El Khoury, Bryony Kimmings, Mamoru Iriguchi and Jenna Watt.
Then, 9-21 April 2012, Forest will be part of the Gate Guests season with a two-weel programme of work:
each night will be a miniature festival in itself, featuring a headline act alongside an array of talks, films, music and work-in-progress performances curated by the headline artist. The first week will be headlined and curated by the brilliant writer and storyteller Chris Thorpe, a founder member of Unlimited Theatre. Each night Chris will be telling a different story, by turns funny, harrowing and brilliantly absurd. In the second week you can see dancer Dan Canham with his huge Edinburgh hit 30 Cecil Street, a moving and lyrical evocation of a derelict theatre in Limerick in Ireland.
