Nom de l'organisme
Fringe of Toronto Theatre Festival
Description de l'organisme
The Toronto Fringe is part of the “Fringe movement” – a worldwide network of indie theatre festivals. As the name suggests, the movement is about celebrating under-represented voices and those on the margins of the performing arts world. It’s a festival where anyone can put on any show, without having to pass through a jury – where theatre students can mount their first production outside of school, where emerging artists can get their big break, and where established artists can test out new work. It’s a festival where audiences come for the adventure and the community as much as for the plays themselves.

Toronto Fringe Festival's 35th Anniversary
Description du projet
This application is for the “Toronto Fringe Festival's 35th Anniversary”, taking place at various venues in Toronto from July 4 to 16, 2023. For the first time the Festival will present a launch event at the Yonge & Dundas Square on July 4th as a new way to promote the Festival as well as give more festival artists the opportunity to attend and meet the public. The event will feature a headlining band as well as a ‘star’ to host the cabaret which will include: artists pitching their upcoming shows to the audience; food vendors; and pop-up visual art installations commissioned as part of the Visual Fringe program. Cartel Madras, a hip hop duo with good local draw, will perform a closing set for the event. The 2023 Festival will have 100 companies presenting approximately 6 performances each at 10 venues, and will also return to the Tranzac Club for their POSTSCRIPT Patio, activating the site with art installations, a food tent, full-service bar, free theatre and music programming on both the outdoor and indoor stages.
