Voila! Europe is a non Brexit-fearing theatre festival whose mission is to bust the barriers of language and showcase plays from around Europe & the UK to the multi-national audiences of London. From new writing by emerging artists to classics revisited by well-loved companies, Voila! celebrates diversity in performing arts, multiple languages, and fearless creatives. No passports required. In 2017, Voila! Europe will open even more barriers to include languages spoken across the european continent, becoming the only European Theatre Festival in London!
The Abu Dhabi Festival is presented and organised by the Abu Dhabi Music & Arts Foundation (ADMAF), a non-profit, independent, cultural foundation. Reflecting the vision of the UAE capital as an international cultural crossroads, the Abu Dhabi Festival is rooted in the principles of the country’s founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan: Tolerance, Respect and Enlightenment. It plays an important role by expanding the boundaries of creativity and innovation through the arts. Abu Dhabi Festival brings the world to Abu Dhabi and takes Abu Dhabi to the world.
The past has always inspired creative artists. Festival O/MODERNT celebrates this process of renewal by exploring connections between the works of classical and contemporary composers. Highly inclusive, it also discovers new relationships between music and other forms of artistic and intellectual expression: dance, visual and plastic arts, film, creative writing, academic research and even cuisine. The venue, Ulriksdals Castle Theatre Confidencen in Solna, is the oldest Rococo theatre in Sweden.
