Wow, 2020 sure had some bugs - so it’s time for an upgrade! In these extraordinary times, artists have proven their resilience and ingenuity with reimagined productions and new projects in direct response to our changing world. Our partner venue, The Cockpit, has adapted and invested in new ways of presenting work online. And Voila has found an unexpected opportunity in crisis, to update our operating system with a new festival model that reaches beyond the walls of the theatre, beyond London, and beyond the UK.
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.
This year's live online performances finished on 21 November, but you can still catch up on some of the shows on-demand, now through 20 December 2020. When you buy a ticket, you can watch the show (and the recording of the watch party discussion with the artists, audience, and festival directors) at your convenience, and as many times as you like.
