We are delighted to announce that our latest commission, Baba Yaga, will be a co-production between Imaginate and Windmill Theatre Co (Australia), created by Rosemary Myers, Christine Johnston and Shona Reppe and co-funded through the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund.
We are over the moon that Trickster-p have invited one of the artists who participated in an Imaginate workshop, Mamoru Iriguchi, to work with them on their next production as this exemplifies our desire to bring interesting artists together and facilitate new collaborations.
Our flagship festival is now called Edinburgh International Children’s Festival (formerly Imaginate Festival). This change reflects the fact that Imaginate not only produces the Festival, but also has a wider remit as a year-round organisation supporting artists to make new and exciting work for young audiences. Imaginate's strategic role within the sector will thus be emphasised, while the Festival's new name will help build awareness amongst audiences who are not familiar with our work.
