Israeli company Incubator confirms cancellation of entire Edinburgh run

The City Israeli Fringe performance cancelled protests

Efforts to find Israeli theatre company Incubator a new space to perform in following protests outside its original venue at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe have been abandoned, resulting in the entire cancellation of the company’s show.

As previously reported by The Stage, Incubator Theatre company, which is partly funded by the Israeli government, was forced to cancel its show The City at the Underbelly Cowbarn after protests disrupted its first previews.

The theatre company, along with Underbelly, has since been trying to find an alternative venue.

However, a statement issued by Underbelly said it had not been possible to find a venue that is “viable for the show and for the security of the audience”.

It added that a private performance had taken place for friends, but said: “Otherwise all performance at Underbelly of the show are now cancelled.”

The City had been scheduled to run from July 30 to August 25.
