New Orleans Fringe Festival Announces Our 2014 Call for Submissions -- Applications due July 2

(April 15, 2014) - The New Orleans Fringe announces our call for submissions for performing groups in the 2014 Fringe Festival.  The Fringe welcomes virtually any type of theater performance - the wilder and the weirder, the better! We particularly encourage original works or innovative adaptations. Application and instructions can be downloaded at our website http://www.nofringe.org/ and are due by July 2.

 

2014 New Orleans Fringe Festival dates: November 19-23

Applications due July 2, 2014

Notifications on August 15, 2014

The New Orleans Fringe Festival is a five-day event where performers from New Orleans, across the US, and around the world, present innovative, unconventional, beautiful, challenging and original theater of all types at wild variety of venues in neighborhoods of our city. In the 2013 Festival, 76 groups presented over 150 shows at 34 venues in the Bywater, Marigny, French Quarter, Warehouse District and Central City, and audience turnout was over 14,000. Fringe 2013 groups included a peer-reviewed line-up of 24 companies presenting at 6 Fringe-managed venues, as well as 52 groups presenting their work at artist-run Bring Your Own Venues. Categories of performance include cabaret, circus arts, comedy, dance, drama, improvisational, immersive experience, interdisciplinary, live documentary, multimedia, musical theater, poetry/spoken word, puppetry, storytelling, burlesque, sideshow, variety and other creative madness.

In 2014 we expect another incredible explosion of theater in New Orleans, and we welcome you to be a part of it. The diverse range of live performance along with the multitude of free events at the Free-for-All Tent, Family Fringe, GoodChildren Fringe Parade and more means that there is something for absolutely everyone at the Fringe. The New Orleans Fringe Festival is now considered one of the country's most exciting and fringe-y theater festivals and the place to be for innovative, thought provoking and envelope-pushing artists. In 2013, American Theatre Magazine said "Artists of all stripes coalesce like never before around the annual New Orleans Fringe Festival, where risk is the rule rather than the exception." 

Artists can apply to perform in a Fringe-sponsored venue in the Bywater and Marigny neighborhoods of New Orleans.  All performances must be between 30 and 60 minutes. $25 application fee with no performance fee. Box office returns are split with performers.  Applications and more info are available online at http://www.nofringe.org/.  The Bring Your Own Venue (BYOV) option is available for those artists who want to organize their own venue. Those registration forms will be available May 15.

The Fringe is a 501(c)3 non-profit that was founded by local arts organizers to nurture fearless theater in New Orleans and to benefit artists, venues, neighborhoods and local businesses. Fringe is supported by a SEED grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. This program is supported by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council.  This program is supported in part by a Community Arts Grant made possible by the City of New Orleans. The grant is administered through the Arts Council of New Orleans.
