Voila! Europe is a multilingual theatre festival produced by The Cockpit. Our curated programme of cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary performance opens a trusted portal to new European theatre for independent artists and adventurous audiences.The festival is live on stage in London and live online everywhere, gathering together a welcoming community of the culturally curious.
Voila! Europe embraces an entrepreneurial fringe model in order to platform emergent theatre: contemporary artist-led work that responds to our world with a sense of urgency. We support and mentor theatre makers to take the next steps in self-producing their work, bypassing institutional gatekeepers. Voila creates a home for artists to speak in their own voice, in their own accent, and in their own language.
The 2021 festival will take place on stage and online, 15 - 21 November. Applications are open now!
The 2020 Voila! Europe festival featured a programme of online interactive shows from across Europe, and pre-recorded shows presented in watch parties on Zoom with the artists. download the PDF brochure here.
