Time Out Sydney

Get out an about for Sydney's annual festival of indie performance

The Fringe turns six this year – and their first birthday present is $24,800 from the City of Sydney, for a pilot program that will transform five vacant shopfronts and existing retail spaces into temporary theatre venues, for the duration of the festival. The initiative is part of the City of Sydney's Creative City Cultural Policy and Action Plan, and inspired by Edinburgh Fringe's low-cost temporary venue licenses.

Festival director Kerri Glassock (who seems to have had a finger in all kinds of arts pies for the last couple of decades, from Jazzgroove to Old 505, and treading the boards herself) says: "This pilot project will enable us to explore out-of-the box spaces to house artists, offer a wider choice of cultural experiences to audiences and engage with the local community."

Sydney Fringe 2015 artists (left to right) Katherine Shearer (Bitch Boxer), Julia Dray and Danielle Stamoulos (Eight), Josipa Draisma (Ljubičica – Wild Violet), Imogen Gardam and Saro Lusty-Cavallari (All About Medea).
