Crossing the Line is a partnership of six theatre companies across Europe, all leaders in the field of working with learning disabled artists. Crossing the Line Festival brings these companies together in an online theatre festival, celebrating inclusive art and artists with learning disabilities. This has been made possible due to the project Trasna Na Líne, funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
The online festival showcases more than 25 events – including theatre performances, documentaries, talks and feature films – from the six companies across six European countries. It is hosted by Theater Babel Rotterdam.
The main language of the festival is English and performances in French, Swedish, Dutch and Polish will be subtitled in English.
