GDIF is a founder member of Without Walls, an Arts Council funded consortium of leading festivals dedicated to the development and touring of new and exciting outdoor work. Behind the scenes, artists, performers, designers, producers and technicians have been hard at work developing some tantalising new projects, which will all be shown as part of this year’s Festival.
GDIF is very excited to be co-commissioning Metro Boulot Dodo’s new large scale storytelling adventure with a fusion of digital imagery and aerial choreography coming together on an ingeniously designed larger-than-life house; Marc Brew’s eagerly anticipated new production which takes place on a 7 tonne island of sand; and Tiata Fahodzi’s contemporary African physical theatre parable “The Legend of Hamba”, which had a recent very successful research and development week at Diorama Arts.
Alongside these co-commissioned projects GDIF will also be presenting other new Without Walls productions by Acrojou, Wet Picnic, Nuno Silva and Ramshacklicious. Over the course of GDIF’s opening weekend, you’ll be able to see all seven of these new Without Walls productions for 2014, so don’t miss this great opportunity!
