Unity 2012

Our 2012 Unity Festival took place from June 21st to the 30th. It was our longest and most ambitious festival yet. The highlight performance was from Australia's Back to Back Theatre who performed their small metal objects show in the centre of Queen Street in Cardiff. Meanwhile in the Weston Studio we welcomed Danza Mobile from Spain, Grupo Dancando com a Diferenca from Portugal alongside UK acts such as Ramesh Meyyappan and Laurence Clark.

2012 was also the first year we ran over a weekend, with a vibrant programme of family friendly performances which included Theatr Maatwerk from the Netherlands, Zim Zam from France alongside Uk based Kazzum.

Our participation project was led by clown's extrodinaire Spymonkey, who led an inclusive group of 20 performers through three weeks of rehearsals developing both an Opening and Closing performance.

7259 people enjoyed inclusive performances at Unity 2012 and 285 places were filled on our exciting workshop programme.

It’s been totally amazing. Wish the festival happened more than once a year
