A very warm welcome to the first season of FesTeLOFF. The idea behind this project is to give a voice to emerging theatre companies working in the United Kingdom and also to create a reliable and visible platform for them. I would like to thank all the companies that sent us their proposal and encourage you all to push forward with your projects. I would particularly like to thank the five companies chosen. With their steadfast enthusiasm, motivation, courage and tenacity, they have recorded their theatre proposals during lockdown and despite the anxiety caused by the pandemic at every level, but particularly on a human level. So, THANK YOU for your humanity in the midst of such dehumanizing times and in face of the fear of Covid. Your determination to continue being creative in such troublesome times means that you are all winners in our eyes. THANK YOU.FesTeLOff
