The Arts! This is the common denominator for all three theatre companies involved in Crossing The Line. Our companies are artistically led, professional theatres and at the same time committed to meeting the challenges of producing, playing and touring theatre performed by artists that are disabled and non-disabled.
Crossing The Line is a project of the co-operative partnership of 3 European theatre companies: all leaders in the field of working with learning disabled artists. The partners are Moomsteatern in Malmo, Sweden; Compagnie de L’Oiseau Mouche in Roubaix, France and Mind The Gap in Bradford, UK.
The project Crossing The Line runs over a period of 2,5 years. Within that time the three theatre companies come together on several occasions in activities to share experiences and learn from each other. We share and learn about our organisations, as artists and from a wider world perspective. In this activities section you will find blog posts from our meetings and residencies done within the project.
The Festival [th uh fes-tuh-vuh l]
In January 2017 in Roubaix (France), Crossing the Line Festival will bring together three European theatre companies, leaders in making professional theatre with learning disabled artists. After two years of exchange and shared practice, we are opening up our experience to the audience, offering a unique opportunity to get involved in an innovative and powerful co-operation project.
