The Compass Festival
Activate, The Bay Theatre at Weymouth College and Dorchester Arts centre are working in partnership to bring you
“The Compass Festival” Showing the way for new performers.
Promoting local small and medium sized touring theatre companies on an international platform between the Olympics and Paralympics.
5 companies for 5 nights. 13th 14th, 16th, 17th and 18th August 2012
Artistically, the festival programme seeks to draw the highest quality small and medium theatre companies to bring diverse and innovative work to a local community that has had little exposure to theatre other than traditional popular seaside offerings.
We hope that this will prove an inspiration for new young people to engage with performing arts and at the same time take the opportunity to engage local audiences to celebrate culture and sport, particularly as Dorset will be hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailing events.
