Submissions for caravan 2020 are now closed. Submissions for the caravan marketplace will open in early 2020. 

caravan is seeking proposals from professional, England-based theatre and performance artists and companies interested in showcasing their work to a group of international presenters, promoters and potential collaborators to Brighton in May 2020.

The caravan showcase presents a programme of the best new English performance to a selection of international promoters, festival organisers and presenters as part of the Brighton Festival. The ambition is to create the conditions for England’s theatre makers to develop international collaborations, tours and exchanges. In previous years companies have secured new commissions, toured to every part of the world and built new international partnerships.

Companies/artists that are selected will also receive one-to-one mentoring in the lead up to the showcase to ensure that they can make the most of any opportunities that arise as a result of their participation.

The caravan showcase will take place on 10-12 May 2020.
