10 Days to Go until Auckland Cuts Its Fringe

In ten days Auckland Fringe 2013 takes over the City of Sails with a myriad of incredible performances from a diverse pool of local and international performers and artists. Already, Auckland Fringe 2013 has a sell out seasonSwan Song by the Wet Hot Beauties!

The festivities officially begin on Friday 15th February from as early as 12pm, as we see Aotea Square shake with Fringe fever. With performance from Relevancy With Kemari, The Wailing Chamber and Sal Valentine and The Babyshakes vs. Fringe, audiences will get the chance to win tickets to some of this year’s most hotly anticipated Fringe shows.

If that wasn’t enough – you’ll also have the chance to relive the days of having a Nokia monophonic mobile phone as Snake The Planet starts it’s trilogy evening performances on the 15th. Fringe fans, retro-gaming enthusiasts and even the slightly curious are given opportunity to play the legendary video game “Snake” projected onto large constructions in and around the CBD.

(For those wondering what “Snake” is – this should help: http://vimeo.com/37637793)

Fringe In The Park, kicking off midday on Saturday 16th February, is a entirely free family day out set in Myers Park. Audiences can travel through the “Gateway to The Fringe” at St. Kevins Arcade and into the park as the Fringe offer a taste of what’s to come from this year’s programme until 4pm. Brimming with activities for kids and over 40 Fringe acts sharing their spoils, this village-fete like event is a live Instagram of the Fringe to come.

Fringe In The Park also conveniently finishes in time for many to make the pilgrimage up to Ponsonby Road for the highly anticipated Auckland Pride Parade - demonstrating the welcome relationship between Pride and Fringe, which includes acts that crossover both programmes.

Auckland Fringe is presented by THE EDGE alongside core partners ASB Community Trust and the K Road Business Association who continue their support for Auckland Fringe in 2013.
