In 2020 we presented 28 animated films, 27 productions, 10 works in progress, 6 cabaret pieces, 3 workshops and 1 industry-focused event.

Our move to Summerhall and The Studio at the Festival Theatre has enabled us to showcase the work of more Scottish-based artists than ever. During MANIPULATE over 40 theatre makers and companies will present their initial creative explorations, works in progress and full productions.

We will also celebrate the work of leading theatre artists and film makers from Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland and the USA. There’s a lot to enjoy and engage with, so join us for a dynamic, eclectic and captivating programme.
