Stockton International Riverside Festival
Our festival promises to be the most entertaining so far, with magical performances from around the globe.
MuareFor four extraordinary days in August, Stockton-on-Tees in the North East of England will be transformed into a vast performance space for both UK and international outdoor arts.
Taking place in and around Stockton on Tees, the festival returns to the River from which it takes its name to bring audiences a stellar lineup of co-commissions, UK premieres and international artists.
With a mission to bring festival audiences the latest and best developments in outdoor arts, SIRF presents extraordinary performances of every scale.
This year’s spectacular festival finale is a UK premiere featuring the Argentinean company Voala. Taking inspiration from the psychedelia of the 1960s, Muare features a giant mobile suspended from a 100 tonne crane, 13 extraordinary acrobats suspended from the mobile and uplifting rock music.
