Crossing the Line Festival

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.

Join us in Roubaix, France from Tuesday 24th to Thursday 26th January 2017 for the first ever Crossing the Line Festival! Three days of performances, workshops, screenings and discussions from three leading European, learning-disability theatre companies: Mind the Gap (UK), Compagnie de l’Oiseau Mouche (FR) and Moomsteatern (SE). 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.
