It’s August and normally this month The Lowry team heads north to Edinburgh International Festival and The Fringe. Between us we see literally hundreds of shows, discover new artists, meet colleagues and of course also take works developed at The Lowry to Edinburgh.
This year all Edinburgh festivals have of course been cancelled. But Edinburgh International Festival just launched its ‘My Light Shines On’ series of online events. For dance fans there is a special programme by Scottish Ballet, featuring a range of short works, including from Lowry regular Alexander Whitley’s Prometheus & Epimetheus. 30minutes of breathtaking young ballet, filmed on-stage and cinematic locations.
