Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) will stage two new works in its Lennox Suite during the Edinburgh International Festival.
The Lennox Suite, which was officially opened earlier this year by HRH The Princess Royal, will this August stage a world premiere of The Encounter by Simon McBurney, as well as a European premiere of 887, a new work by Robert Lepage.
Welcoming the fact the EICC is to become one of the six major venues for the Edinburgh International Festival, chief executive, Marshall Dallas (pictured) said his team was “delighted” the venue was able to provide a major stage for important new work at the Festival.
“In our new Lennox Suite we offer a uniquely flexible space that gives unrivalled scope for innovative stagecraft and the creation of memorable performances,” said Dallas.
EICC will also host the Guardian Edinburgh International Television Festival for the 17th consecutive year in 2015 and as Venue150@EICC celebrates its 9th year on The Edinburgh Fringe.
