Registrations Open For Auckland Fringe 2013

Registrations Open For Auckland Fringe 2013

Auckland Fringe 2013 – 15 February – 10 March 2013

Auckland Fringe is planning its comeback in February 2013 and is calling all performers, artists and creative types to register to participate in a global arts festival phenomenon.

Following the success of 2011’s festival, which saw 1296 people involved in 99 shows, with an audience of 51,888, Auckland Fringe is looking to once again eclipse that number – building upon the initial foundations laid down in the inaugural 2009 season.

Anything can happen at Auckland Fringe, given its open access arts mentality; performances in the past have ranged from incredible theatrical events (Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer, When Animals Dream of Sheep), music (Fringe vs. Mum, Affetto), dance (Weg: ‘A Way’) through to interesting art pieces (The Safety Device of Elisha Otis, Pigs In The Yard). If Auckland Fringe could be summed up in two words, those two words would be “anything” and “goes.”

Registrations for the 2013 season can be submitted via the Auckland Fringe Website, and open Wednesday 1 August 2012 and close on Friday 28 September 2012.

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

Artist registrations: 1 August – 28 September 2012
Auckland Fringe: 15 February – 10 March 2013

Auckland Fringe runs concurrently with NZ Fringe in Wellington and is closely followed by the Dunedin and Hamilton Fringes, creating a Nationwide touring network.
