Unity 2013

Unity Festival 2013

Our 2013 Unity Festival took place from June 12th to the 22nd at our partner venues Wales Millennium Centre and Sherman Cymru. It attracted more people than we ever have before, with over 10000 enjoying the wonderful international programme of performance and taking part on workshops.

The festival opened in the main house at Sherman Cymru with a performance from the legendary Candoco Dance Company. We also welcomed Danny Braverman in Theatre 2 at The Sherman with a beautiful performance of Wot No Fish before he went on to a very successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe. The performance programme at Wales MIllennium Centre's Weston Studio featured Cia Jose Galan of Seville, with the stunning En Mis Cabales, Cirque Inextremistes of France with their breath taking Extremites, and of course our own touring show The Adventures of Sancho Panza.

For the second year running we continued with our Family Weekend, with the highlight performance being Greaea Theatre Company's The Iron Man, featuring a puppet the height of a double decker bus which proved to be a real crowd puller. Also featured were Kazzum, Mind the Gap,  Bicycle Ballet, Taking Flight Theatre Company and our own Odyssey performers working with Mr and Mrs Clark.

Our participation project was led by the wonderful Frantic Assembly, who led an inclusive group of 16 performers through two weeks of rehearsals which led to two performances on the final day of the festival in the foyer of The Centre.
