Two work in progress performances from the recipients of 2019 Surge Bursaries exploring dynamic and challenging physical theatre in an indoor setting. The recipients have worked with leading Scottish-based directors and practitioners to develop their initial creative pitches. Presenting the results made thus far to an audience for the first time is a valuable opportunity for these artists to test their ideas. Surge is Scotland’s developer of physical theatre, circus and street arts and runs Scotland’s largest street theatre festival – Surge.
SURGE runs projects to develop street arts, physical theatre and circus in Scotland. We work with artists, performance companies and educators at all levels of experience. We also run SURGE Festival, our annual event, which takes place each July, which brings new Scottish work and cutting edge international performances to the streets, theatres and unusual spaces of Glasgow.
