Short Works

A truly diverse programme of short dance, movement and physical theatre works selected from an international open call. Artists and companies from far and wide including Belarus, Hungary, Denmark, Germany and more. The Short Works programme has been a highlight of recent Festival programmes for audiences and artists alike. Not to be missed!

Inspiring on so many levels. An amazing range of talent from so many disciplines of such high quality is rarely seen in Derry. Audience feedback on past Festival Short Works 

Thanks to all artists and companies who submitted proposals to the Festival Open Call this year.

Short Works Programme 2017

This year we are very happy to again present a programme of short works selected through an “Open Call” process. We received 190 proposals from all over the world and I dedicated two weeks to watching video links for each proposal. The process of selecting works to invite is always very demanding but it is also wonderful to focus strongly on the process for some days. Just as in previous years my overwhelming feeling was of great gratitude for the opportunity to see the work of so many people. This year we have invited artists from, or based in, Ireland, Hungary, Greece, Denmark, Netherlands, Israel, Belarus, Belgium and Germany. The eight pieces which I invited are varied in style but they all seemed to me to come from a deep generosity of spirit. Steve Batts, Echo Echo Artistic Director
