European map of venue re-opening
Pearle – Live Performance Europe has produced an insightful live map showing the planned re-opening of venues across Europe. The map shows the different situations from country to country, with some countries allowing performances for smaller audiences, others allowing rehearsals, whilst in many countries live performances stay closed until further notice.
They state: “Over the past year, the live performance sector has proven its capacity to manage the risks for rehearsals and performances. It has also fully proven its expertise on how to manage audiences. In the meantime, various scientific studies provide evidence of the fact that it is absolutely possible to reopen venues and hold open air events in safe conditions for workers and audience. It’s time for governments to give the sector an outlook.”
