***** APPLICATIONS HAVE NOW CLOSED FOR OUR MAKING WAVES BURSARY 2019 *****
2019 marks the third edition of Refract; a festival of performance, music and events jilted from convention, that challenges audiences to 'see things differently'.
The programme of work is carefully curated by Waterside and Creative Industires Trafford. Previous festivals have welcomed acclaimed productions such as Stuntman (Ellie Dubois/Superfan), Happy Hour (Tmesis Theatre), War with the Newts (Knaive Theatre) and commissions by Dance Manchester, Refract provides a platform to artists who push the boundaries of traditional theatre and performance in unusual and unexpected ways.
Refract:19 runs from 18 - 27 July 2019 and takes place in and around Trafford.
Making Waves is a project founded by Waterside Arts and CIT, which aims to provide a helping hand to makers, artists and companies in overcoming the challenges and barriers faced when touring new work or considering the future life of their projects. This could be a financial contribution, support in getting your work seen by programmers or just a sounding board.
This package aims to support work which has already been made or in the process of being so, potentially with touring plans or Edinburgh Fringe dates with a view to subsequently tour.
