Watch out Edinburgh, we’re coming for ya!

Hull’s heading back to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this festival as Absolutely Cultured’s Hull Independent Producer Initiative in partnership with Middle Child, supported by ourselves and Hull Truck Theatre, supports shows by five exciting theatre companies from the city.

From 2 to 26 August, Edinburgh Fringe Festival will once again (who remembers 2017?) see a huge Hull Takeover as The Herd, Middle Child, The Roaring Girls, Just Club and Casus Circus take to the stage to show the world just what Hull’s made of.

Commissioned by ourselves, Casus will be showcasing their show DNA in Edinburgh before bringing it to Hull later in the year. From the international acrobats who brought sell-out Driftwood from Sydney Opera House to Back to Ours, expect more heart-stopping, breath-holding, beautifully human moments in their biggest show yet.

Louise, our Director, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with Casus again. They came to our May 2018 half-term festival straight from Sydney Opera House, sold out four shows with Driftwood, and fell in love with Hull at the same time.

“It was immediately clear to us all that they really resonate with the city, so we wanted to team them up with the Takeover to show Edinburgh audiences what we have to offer. DNA will then be heading to Back to Ours later in the year so our Hull audiences can experience it.

“They’re also incredibly experienced, brilliant performers, and their support will be invaluable.”
