Delve deeper into the Festival program.
Conversations is our series of talks and encounters that offer Festival lovers a space for reflection on the challenges, questions, stories, desires and themes proposed by this year’s artists.
Ruth Little is your navigator and we invite you to join her to engage more deeply with the Festival ideas and artists. The associate director of pioneering climate change and expedition organisation Cape Farewell, Little is also a writer, teacher and literary manager of new writing theatres in Australia and the UK. As a theatre and dance dramaturg she works with artists including Akram Khan and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
This is your opportunity to hear the unique perspectives of Festival artists as they discuss big ideas and what compels them to create.
