About Us

Mission Statement

Out of Orbit is a once-off arts festival rooted in Cork, broadcast online around the world and produced by the MA cohort in Arts Management and Creative Producing at University College Cork, Ireland. The festival programme features a diverse range of artforms including theatre, music, storytelling, dance, and fashion.  

As emerging producers driven by the belief that the arts are essential, we want to reconnect audiences to art, artists and creative communities. Our festival presents vibrant performances by established and emerging artists and invites audiences into creative processes and conversations about the arts in a welcoming virtual space. 

Orbits are repeating cycles and over the course of the pandemic the world has been pushed into a new cycle, a new orbit. Our festival plans have been made, unmade, and remade, and the result is a unique constellation of artforms and experiences that exist quite happily Out of Orbit. As producers we aim to shed light on the power of creativity and its potential in the now. We aspire to bring a festival atmosphere to our audiences wherever they are and to share a sense of joy, hope, and excitement for the future. 

Celebrate the arts as essential. Join us as we drift Out of Orbit. May 2021.
