  • Without Walls On Tour A catalogue of Without Walls shows available for touring

    Without Walls is a consortium of commissioning festivals, all of which share a commitment to supporting inspirational new outdoor work. Since 2007, working collaboratively as a group, and with partners from cultural institutions, local authorities and other investors, Without Walls has supported the creation of over 70 new shows of all scales and genres, generating a new momentum in the development of outdoor work in the UK.

    Without Walls On Tour has been produced to share information about the range and diversity of shows available for touring, and is part of our commitment to supporting the distribution of artists work. You will find here information about all the shows that are still in repertoire, with brief information about the show and the company, as well as contact details for the artists.

    This is more than just a listing of shows and contact details. The fact that this publication contains details about nearly 40 shows, is a testament to the transformational impact of sustained funding from Arts Council England for the consortium and the hard work and vision of some of the UKs most talented and visionary artists. Creating outdoor work in England is not for the faint hearted and the artists listed here have risen to the challenge with creativity, vision and energy, demonstrating that outdoor arts in the UK is thriving. Without Walls is grateful for support from Arts Council England and proud to have played a role in enabling, supporting and inspiring the creation of the projects that are outlined in these pages.

    Long may this exciting work continue.
