O[email protected] has just launched its second season of productions, featuring over 50 original works from around the world that are free to watch.
Artistic Director of theSpaceUK, Charles Pamment said, “.....we want to start 2021 with renewed vigour. It is an absolute joy for us to present a second season of original work presented by an array of passionate and talented creatives from across the globe”.
The venture follows on from theSpaceUK’s highly successful online Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2020 that presented over eighty shows and received some 30,000 views. According to press officer Nick Abrams, it also gained ‘a constant flow of media reviews, four major awards, including an Off West End Award (0ffies) for the platform itself, and global press coverage’. Altogether it kept the spirit of the Fringe alive when many others decided to give it a rest.
This January’s programme is arranged in six sections: Theatre, Comedy, Music, Cabaret, Film and Spoken Word, providing material that caters for a wide range of theatrical interests. The initiative has attracted talent from around the world with artists keen to contribute works that can be associated with the Fringe. In most cases the material they present is in preparation for a return to live theatre. Many companies have already made bookings at theSpaceUK and the 2021 Fringe programme is well under way. Someone just needs to tell the virus to disappear!
