To experience the MANIPULATE Digital Festival at its best, we have provided some guidelines and top tips for utilising our livestream and watch again features.
This year there are more obstacles to togetherness than usual, and if you’re feeling disconnected from a wider creative community, read for some opportunities to chat, think together and socialise during MANIPULATE week.
MANIPULATE #14 will see the return of our animated film programme, featuring diverse and award-winning animated shorts from Scotland and around the world over two evenings in our Digital Festival.
The International Emerging* Critics Programme will offer 5-10 aspiring or emerging writers/bloggers based in Scotland the opportunity to develop their critical skills in writing about and discussing live performance over a 2-year programme.
In an exciting new venture for MANIPULATE Festival #14, we have commissioned eight kinetic artworks in a new live promenade project called RESTLESS WORLDS. Through the project, audiences in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow can enjoy a live, artistic, outdoor experience in their city during this particularly challenging coronavirus winter.
The 14th edition of MANIPULATE Festival features lots of opportunities to develop practice and sharpen skills through a series of workshops, delivered for the first time entirely online, and spanning puppetry, object theatre and animation.
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the programme for MANIPULATE 2021, our innovative festival of international, award-winning visual theatre, puppetry and animated film.
We are delighted to announce that in the recently released Creative Europe 2019-2020 awards, Puppet Animation Scotland and partners Ljubljana Puppet Theatre (Slovenia), Lele Theatre (Lithuania) and the Academy of Arts & Culture (Croatia) received significant funding to support the development of a contemporary puppetry critical platform.
