Invitation to theatre / performance groups for Newport Rising Festival - animating the torchlit march November 2nd

We're looking for a team to light the metaphorical touchpaper for the torch-lit march at the centre of the festival this November 2nd. Last year the brilliant Flying Bridge Theatre invoked the spirits of the Chartists to bring performance to the bandstand at Belle Vue Park then the Westgate Hotel at the focal point of the festival. What will this year look like? That's up to you! If you are a performing arts company with experience in creating and producing unique, engaging performances outdoors in non-theatre settings, we want to hear from you. Time is short though, so you should read the brief attached on the link below. Deadline for submissions is 5pm Wednesday 11th September 2019. Help us spark imaginations and inspire new audiences in the story of Newport Rising.
