Hibrow's Curators
are exceptional individuals and cultural organisations invited from around the globe and across the arts. Each curator chooses their own projects to share with Hibrow's audience and works with Hibrow's production teams to produce them and distribute.

Steven Berkoff's America

A unique Fringe  event: the world premiere screening of Steven Berkoff's recent live recording reading a personal selection of his own poetry about growing up in New York and his many experiences of working in America.  Funny, moving and not a little indiscreet - a must for all fans of this theatre and film icon.

Berkoff, Art & Peter Howson

The world premiere of a 20 min short film of Steven introducing his personal art collection, and discussing what art means to him and his work; followed by a live in-conversation event between Berkoff friend and collaborator Peter Howson, one of Scotland's most eminent painters and the official UK war artist in Iraq, and legendary Edinburgh impresario and artist Ricky Demarco.  A unique Festival experience which promises to be an unforgettable event.
