Touring Entertainment: Game for a show
Thursday 5 March, 17:00 - 18:00
Beyond big-name touring and headliner-driven festivals, the world of family shows and touring exhibitions is consistently exciting both fans and promoters. The latter, of course, drawn by longer runs, a lack of superstar problems, and more consistent business. And frequently incorporating cutting-edge production and technology, it’s a creative and vibrant sector. With recent editions of this ILMC panel being standing-room only, this year’s session takes place in a larger room to accommodate demand. Joined by an all-star cast and crew, Christoph Scholz and Lucy Levitt explore the key developments and brightest new spectacles across touring exhibitions, pop culture and family shows.
