To celebrate the opening of the Turner Prize exhibition at Margate's Turner Contemporary, and the opening of the Margate Festival Margate NOW - UK Arts International and Looping The Loop are proud to be presenting Making Waves, a weekend showcase of theatre, dance and live performance.
Taking place from Friday 27th Sunday 29th September in venues around Margate, including the historic Theatre Royal (the UK's second oldest working theatre) and the 50-seat Tom Thumb (one of the smallest theatre's in the world), Making Waves invites you to experience some of the best performance work that is currently being produced in East Kent.
Opening with 1927s new production, Roots, Making Waves is the industry's hottest new ticket, offering an opportunity for producers, venue managers, programmers, festival directors, agents, funders and other industry professionals to see a broad range of productions and engage with artists who are ready to take their work further afield.
