International Workshop Festival Scotland

Monday October 22 to Friday 2 November 2018


This autumn, Cumbernauld Theatre hosts the inaugural Scottish International Theatre Workshop Festival –developed in association with our Company-in-Residence for 2018, Company of Wolves.


What Is It?

The International Theatre Workshop Festival is exactly what it says it is – it’s a mini-festival bring together the work of 4 leading, international theatre/performance practitioners who we’ve brought to Scotland to lead an exploration of their work, their methods, ideas and inspirations.

And it’s happening here, in Scotland, at Cumbernauld Theatre, this autumn.

We’re hoping this first festival is the start of a new and regular biennial International Workshop Festival programme.


Who is It For?

The Workshop Festival is for professional theatre practitioners – actors, solo artists, theatre makers, performance artists and theatre directors – no matter what your career stage – this is an opportunity to be creatively curious, to step outside the bounds of our own work and obsessions and to encounter another.

This is a genuine artist development opportunity  – not just another Masterclass

We’re currently working on bringing important, leading theatre/performance makers to Scotland to engage with, learn from, and to share the working practices of artists drawn from outside our own communities.  This represents an opportunity for genuine exchange and exploration.

In spirit, the Scottish International Workshop Festival is directly influenced by the strong work created through the original UK IWF held back in the 1990’s and we happily acknowledge inspiration drawn from the original festival.


When Will the Artists Be Announced?

We’re currently putting together the team of artists to lead the work and are hoping to announce the Workshop Team in April 2018.  We’ll update the site and our social media when we have all our agreements in place.
