Submissions Open for 2nd Sydney Fringe


The Sydney Fringe opens the floodgates on Monday 21 March for submissions to this year’s second annual festival. 

In 2010 the Fringe received in excess of 350 submissions across the range of the performing, digital and visual arts. And it is expecting an even greater avalanche of submissions in 2011.

“If you have an idea,” said incoming Festival Director Richard Hull, “the Fringe wants to hear about it. 

“Existing shows or brand new works… whatever they are and however they are - off the wall, off the kerb, off kilter, underground, overground, alternative, contemporary, mainstream, slipstream, risky or frisky. Anything that entertains and will make Sydney sit up and pay attention. Now is the time to make your pitch.”

“This event is unique on the Sydney cultural calendar and provides a rare platform for established and emerging artists to unleash their talent and imagination on the world. We want to induce a maelstrom of creativity.“

More than 3000 artists featured in 256 works over a 3 week period that showcased work across every imaginable discipline and genre. Audiences topped 100,000 and – with food and drink purchases – contributed an estimated $10m economic boost to the vibrant district.


Submission Details:
Fringe Submission fee is $25. Submissions close on 30 April

Do Not Go Gentle | Drill Hall Theatre & Everyman Theatre Company

There are few topics more challenging than death, and the inevitable journey toward this state of non-being. The journey, one might say, is fraught with difficulty as we see our loved ones deteriorate, diminish, dement and lose their way; something we all fear; after all, what will happen to us come the evolution?

No End of Blame | Sport for Jove

Putting the ink into think, Howard Barker’s No End of Blame is as powerful and poignant, perhaps even more so, today, as it was when written, nearly forty years ago.
