THE deadline for registration of Fringe productions wanting to take part in the 2013 edition of the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown is this Friday.
The 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 it comprised a meagre 10 events. 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.
All interested artists, performers, directors and producers can request application forms and information booklets from the Fringe office: e-mail email@example.com or telephone (046) 603 1103, or fax 086 233 2119.
Forms are also available, and can be submitted, via the festival's website,www.nationalartsfestival.co.za/artists
The festival will take place from June 27 to July 7.
