In the period between September 8th and September 23rd, the annual Fringe Festival will be arranged in Dublin. Are you a fan of culture, art, and discovering talent, the Fringe Festival might be something for you.
Every year there are Fringe Festivals arranged all across the world. In Dublin, the festival brings more than 30,000 people to the city, and every year they see performances and groups they have never seen before. After all, that is often what a fringe festival is about.
Few people go to the theatres, and tickets for such well-known theaters can be very expensive. At the fringe festival, smaller theater groups and artists get the chance to bring their work and acts out to a greater audience. This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the artists but also for the audience to see and demystify the world of actors and theaters.
A Fringe festival definition
“Fringe festivals are all about providing an accessible avenue for independent theatre artists to produce and perform their work in front of an audience. The Fringe is really the essence of theatre; virtually anybody can submit a show to the Fringe and the festivals place no limits on content so shows can be bold, raw and uncensored.” (source: Huffington Post)
