guide to touring into the UK for international theatre makers
This practical guide is aimed at artists, companies, and producers who wish to present performing arts work in the UK, particularly those working on the independent and small scale. This can be with a tour of your work, presenting at a festival, or working in partnership with other artists and companies to create a new project.
In general, the UK performing arts scene is vibrant and high quality with a strong level of business and management skills. With public funding getting tighter, arts organisations need to be increasingly entrepreneurial and resilient. The good news is there’s a huge appetite for international work both outgoing and incoming. This is supported in principle by the main funding agencies though raising the finances for it to happen needs to be undertaken on a more commercial basis.
This guide will give you clear guidelines for how to go about taking the first steps to working in the UK.
