The National Arts Festival, Grahamstown is now accepting applications for Fringe productions wanting to take part in the 2013 edition of the Festival. The Festival will take place from 27 June to 7 July 2013.
The National Arts Festival Fringe is unique in South Africa in that no selection criteria are applied – participation in the Fringe is open to everyone. The Fringe has mushroomed in size since its inception in 1979 when a diminutive 10 events comprised the Fringe – it now consistently boasts over 400 events across all the arts genres. Disciplines include children’s theatre, film, comedy, drama, physical theatre, dance, cabaret, visual art, performance poetry, music theatre, and the full scope of music genres.
“As always, we’re looking forward to programming an exciting selection of productions. Artists who want to be part of the 2013 Fringe have until 18 January to get their forms in to us, and we’re on hand before then to help with any questions they may have,” Fringe Manager Zee Nweba said.
