Québec in Edinburgh!
A considerable number of artists from Québec will feature at this year's Edinburgh International Festival.
This summer the Assembly Festival welcomes Québec circus companies the 7 Fingers and Flip FabriQue. William Burdett-Coutts, founder of the Assembly Festival in Edinburgh which has presented numerous works from Québec over the years, commented on the contribution that artists from Québec have made over the years:
“Assembly Festival is delighted to be working with a number of shows from Québec again this year. Assembly is in its 38th year on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and we have had a long relationship with Québec. The presentation of an international programme is what gives Edinburgh so much of its vitality. It’s my 40th year at the Fringe and the growth of this event is down to the energy and input that everyone contributes. There is nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world."
Full details of these Festival events, and events across the UK, Ireland and the Nordic countries featuring Québec artists, can be found in this brochure.
