 UZ Arts are delighted to announce an exciting, innovative international programme of theatre and performance, they will be bringing Directors and Artists from 6 European countries to the Sura Medura International Residency Centre Sri Lanka to work with Sri Lankan performers and artists to create 6 new ground breaking shows.

The shows will be developed through residencies, which will take place at Sura Medura in the winter of 2014 / 2015.  They will give the Directors and Artists the opportunity to explore and develop new work for Sri Lanka and international touring, with the 2015 programme set to explore current developments in art in public space in collaboration with the local artistic and wider communities.

Each of the artists taking part in the residency programme has extensive international experience, much of which involves public engagement with local communities, either in the development of the work, or in the performance of it. The programme has been created with the support of In Situ and their Europeans Abroad fund, EUNIC Sri Lanka (consisting of British Council, Goethe Institute, and Alliance Francaise), the University of Visual and Performing Arts Sri Lanka, and local businesses.
