Made in Scotland 2021 programme launches
29 June 2021
The Made in Scotland Showcase returns for the 2021 Edinburgh Festival Fringe presenting the best of theatre, dance and music from Scotland live in-person and online.
The curated showcase features a range of work, including six world premieres, showcasing the quality and resilience of Scotland’s amazing artists producing work in these challenging times: from site specific work on Silverknowes Beach to a digital world premiere from Scotland's leading cellist collaborating with a world-renowned Indian violinist.
Made in Scotland 2021 is a celebration of creativity and our desire to re-engage with one another and share stories once again - whether in person or in the digital space.
The 10 artists, companies and ensembles who will present their work this year were awarded funding in 2020 and chose to rollover to 2021. An additional 8 companies originally awarded in 2020 have chosen to rollover once again and will now present their work in the 2022 Fringe.
Applications will open as normal in Autumn 2021 for the 2022 showcase, so 2022 will therefore see an extended Made in Scotland showcase to coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Fringe.
In light of the ongoing restrictions and to take advantage of the opportunities for digital engagement this year, 2021’s funding was adapted to create a Digital Assets Pot. All 18 original companies, those presenting this year and those rolling into 2022, were invited to apply for up to £3000 towards the creation of digital assets such as video, photography, audio, or graphic design to amplify the ongoing promotion of their shows and enable engagement with industry professionals during the Fringe.
The Made in Scotland showcase is made possible through funding from the Scottish Government’s Expo Fund and is a partnership between the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society, Creative Scotland, Federation of Scottish Theatre and the Scottish Music Centre.
