iF Platform at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015

This year will see the first iF Platform - a ground breaking showcase featuring the UK’s top disabled artists and integrated arts companies as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015.

We are really excited to present five ambitious, diverse and truly dynamic shows together with a conversation day looking at how we can continue to encourage a rich future for the arts world. The quality of work selected for this year’s iF Platform demonstrates the wealth of exceptional disabled artists that we have in the UK.

We have a range of artists and art forms: from spoken word to avant-garde dance and from artists at the outset of their career to those with a proven track record. This year's artists are:

Stopgap Dance Company | Artificial Things | 23-31 August | ZOO Southside | www.stopgapdance.com

Jo Bannon | Alba | 24-28 August | Forest Fringe |  www.jobannon.co.uk

Marc Brew Company | For Now, I am.. | 22-30 August | ZOO Southside | www.marcbrew.com

Rowan James | Easy For You To Say | 23 - 30 August | ZOO Southside | www.changetheradio.com

Touretteshero | Backstage In Biscuit Land | 24-30 August | Pleasance Two | www.touretteshero.com

We are proud to support performers with a unique creative voice who have important things to say about the world in which we live. We hope to change the way audiences think and inspire the next generation of talented artists.

We hope these shows will excite, inspire and ignite your imagination and look forward to entertaining you.
