About the Show/Event
Information for Sprint Festival at Camden People's Theatre, Inner London (Festival). Sprint is London's biggest and best established annual festival of new and unusual theatre. It showcases work by the most exciting new artists and companies in the UK and beyond. Since its inception in 1997 as a showcase for 'physical, visual and unusual theatre', Sprint has continued to grow in scope and reputation. Companies who found early success at Sprint include Unlimited Theatre, Cartoon de Salvo, Fevered Sleep and Shunt. More recently, the festival has featured the work of Idle Motion, Made In China, Paper Birds, Stoke Newington International Airport and Search Party. With performances from more than 35 artists, the 2021 festival themes range from migration, football and human nature to employment, conspiracy theories and fear. Even more than elsewhere in CPT's calendar, Sprint Festival sees the venue throw open its doors - and stages - to artists at the dawn of their careers, making brand new cutting-edge work.
