Voila! Europe is a multilingual theatre festival produced by The Cockpit. Our curated programme of cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary performance opens a trusted portal to new European theatre for independent artists and adventurous audiences.The festival is live on stage in London and live online everywhere, gathering together a welcoming community of the culturally curious.
Voila! Europe embraces an entrepreneurial fringe model in order to platform emergent theatre: contemporary artist-led work that responds to our world with a sense of urgency. We support and mentor theatre makers to take the next steps in self-producing their work, bypassing institutional gatekeepers. Voila creates a home for artists to speak in their own voice, in their own accent, and in their own language.
‘Voila! Europe clearly has an imaginative and energetic approach to presenting international work in an urban festival setting. From its initial aims it has proved itself to be responsive, quirky, and risk-taking.’
