NY FRINGE FESTIVAL (article first published : 2002-01-6)

The New York International Fringe Festival is looking for performing arts companies. The five-year old FringeNYC is the largest multicultural arts festival in North America, offering theatre, dance, puppetry, spoken word, multi-media... in short, a 12 day celebration of performing artists from all over the world.

Each year FringeNYC is held in 20 venues on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. An International Festival, last year it featured over 180 companies from America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.

FringeNYC takes place from August 9 to 25, 2002, in New York. The application fee is $40 (approx R480) and the participation fee is $350 (approx R4,200). These fees include the rent for the venues where groups will perform five to seven shows. As a net income performers will receive $7 (approx R84) for each full price ticket sold for their show. Performers will have to absorb visa fees and must promote their own shows.

FringeNYC cannot pay hotel or travel expenses but festival organisers will try to assist in the raising of funds and in media and PR work. As technical possibilities provided by the FringeNYC are very limited it is strongly recommend that technical needs be limited to an absolute minimum.

To participate in the FringeNYC, simply download the application from the website www.fringenyc.org and send the completed form back as soon as possible. More details from André Guedel on 09 001 - (212) 420 8888 or 09 001 - (212) 260 92 62 or e-mail andreguedel@aol.com
