XTRAX supports inspirational outdoor performance running projects, festivals and showcases designed to promote innovative outdoor work from UK and international artists.
Our showcases bring together UK and international promoters and professionals, to see high quality performance. These events, delivered in partnership with some of the UK’s leading festivals, provide opportunities for artists to sell their work, tour more widely and extend their reach.
Previous showcase partners include Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Kendal Arts International, Manchester International Arts, Arts Council England, Decibel, Fuse Medway Festival and Dance Initiative Greater Manchester.
