Crane and Williams have been invited to CONTEXTS the Sokolovsko Festival of Ephemeral Art in Poland 29th June - 6th July 2016, where they will present extracts from Brighton Theatre's pioneering productions performed at Richard Demarco's galleries during Edinburgh Festivals from the 70s to the 90s, including GOGOL, ROLLING THE STONE, THE PASSION CONSIDERED AS AN UPHILL BICYCLE RACE, & VANITY.
Every year CONTEXTS pays tribute to an outstanding artist of unquestionable merits. In 2016 it is Richard Demarco, the extraordinary artist and curator, for decades responsible for visual arts at the Edinburgh Festival, creator of exceptional archive, unique documentation of international art since 1960s.
