Festival Welcome: Day 1

Join members of the festival team on Facebook Live as they welcome you to the festival and give you the lowdown on what you can expect.

On The Line is a new online festival created by Northumbria University’s Theatre and Performance MA Students; featuring a bite-sized programme of contemporary theatre, performance art, multi-sensory installations, audio experiences and talks.

As a result of the Coronavirus, and to safeguard artists and audiences, this year’s MA cohort have taken the opportunity to reimagine their end of year showcase by creating an internationally accessible online festival.

Ten MA Theatre and Performance students from Northumbria University are premiering their projects and provocations as part of On The Line, which takes place from Wednesday 23 to Friday 25 September with some works being available to view until Sunday 27 September.

The festival aims to create a welcoming and safe space for artists and audiences to connect and encounter new work and big ideas from the next generation of theatre markers, all from the comfort of their own homes.
