Hidden Door Festival, Tuesday 30th May
The old Leith Theatre returns to its theatrical roots as the curtains rise on a truly excellent night of theatre from the incredible multi-award winning Grid Iron, who are bringing a new work-in-progress South Bend, and Ludens Ensemble present new performance Love based on William Shakespeares Sonnets.
Plus Tragic Carpet present Rendition, using puppetry, soundscapes, object, shadow and visual theatre to explore the collusion between the CIA and the British Government.
There is also more Spoken Word and Poetry with Sonnet Youth Takeover bringing us an unpredictable spoken word house party and theres also Inky Fingers Spoken Word Showcase, supporting and encouraging writers, experimentation, and community.
Performance times TBC
Returning for its fourth edition, the non-profit and 100% volunteer-run multi arts festival will this year take place in the old Leith Theatre; with 10 days and nights of music, theatre, visual art, film and spoken word bringing the stunning venue back to life. Left derelict and decaying for 28 years, Hidden Door will provide the initial spark to get this art deco gem back up and running as a major Edinburgh arts venue and transform its empty spaces with the help of some of the best creative talent from Scotland and beyond.
The festival will be free to explore every day until 6pm, with tickets now on sale for the evening events.
