Refuge is a season of contemporary theatre, dance, visual art, film and conversation, questioning what it means to be international in today’s world.
Seventy-five years after Rudolf Bing, himself a refugee, co-founded the Edinburgh International Festival, Refuge invites you to share in the profound contribution to arts and culture given by the movement of people across the globe.
Refuge is in collaboration with Scottish Refugee Council, encompassing a public art installation, an immersive audio experience, verbatim theatre, a dance work for families and autobiographical performances exploring themes of refugeehood, migration, identity and inclusion.
The Refuge series is supported by
