NZ FRINGE FESTIVAL 2012 (Wellington)
A fierce, feisty, fabulous, Fringe Festival is ready to roll out some colourful mayhem in the Cultural Capital, 10 February until 3 March 2012.
We’ve got three weeks celebrating weird and wonderful expressions of art – over 60 Visual, Music, Dance and Theatre performances will be found in 30 sites around the city featuring hundreds of participants!
And we are really excited to see 20 of these performances are free or koha!
Heading the Fringe Festival 2012 is Producer Emma Flack who is proud to be bringing together some ofWellington’s iconic festivals under the banner of The Creative Capital Arts Trust.
Emma says “As a first timer to Fringe, I am astounded to see the creativity and passion that has gone into the 2012 Fringe shows. We have everything from superheroes and space bitches to traditional dancers from Ghana, from garden gnomes from the Netherlands to a poet laureate, as well as several shows direct from the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe festivals. It’s what Fringe Festivals are all about – and I feel privileged to be part of it!”
Joining the Fringe Team are two huge fans of the Fringe Festival, Hannah Clarke as Artist Liaison and Brianne Kerr as Publicist.
“I’m super excited to be part of this years NZ Fringe Festival,” says Hannah. “ Having been involved in over 10 Fringe shows in previous years plus venues and events, it’s great to be in the Fringe again and now on the other side. I really can’t wait for February. It’s going to be choice!”
The Fringe Festival 2012 will be a joyous symphony of rap comedy, classical poetry, stunt comedy, rock opera, alternative fashion show, puppetry, circus, choir, and much, much more!
