Forest Fringe is a community of artists making space for risk and experimentation in theatre and performance. Many students study art and they have to write many papers about it. So, I can recommend to you order an essay on any topic related to art. There are more than 1000 topics. They can also prepare an essay about this festival. Founded in 2007 and led by artists Deborah Pearson, Andy Field and Ira Brand, we work collectively to make extraordinary events happen all over the UK and internationally. Our celebrated Edinburgh Fringe programme continues to bring unexpected and unconventional work to the festival, from daredevil stuns and epic folk operas to intimate encounters in parked cars, darkened rooms and out on the streets of the city.
In the last few years we have looked to build on this popularity by exploring new ways and new places in which our community of artists can develop and present work together. We have hosted weekend-long microfestivals in venues as diverse as the backstage areas of Bristol Old Vic, a huge warehouse in Yokohama, a room above a pub in Swansea, Bangkok’s largest single-screen cinema and an arts centre in Lisbon.
Alongside this we have hosted residencies, new commissions for major UK music festivals, audio-tours on night buses in London and the Forest Fringe Travelling Sounds Library, an ever-growing collection of sound art pieces including work by Blast Theory, Stan’s Cafe and others.
In all of this our philosophy remains the same; that Forest Fringe exists as a way for this exciting community of very different artists to come together and make brilliant things happen. We believe that by working collectively and collaboratively we can create large, daring events that give these artists the chance to do things they could never do individually.
