Fringe Fest Debrief
Most of you will be aware for three weeks in Feb/March 17 Tory St was the home to several Fringe Festival events and I thought I would post about it here to let everyone know what happened.
There were 9 Shows in total they were:
Queens - Maria Williams
Misunderstood the Musical - Raven Horse Productions
D - Jess Brownell
Seeing the City and Licking it's Crown - Ania and Kim Upstill
Potato Stamp Megalomaniac - Pressure Point Collective
Raster - Crux
Exposure - Sara Pattison
Future Splendid - Jonny Potts
I, Will Brown - Eamonn Marra (me)
The shows were very ranged from Art to Comedy to Dance to Theatre to somewhere in between and brought a range of different people into the space and I thought it was a really special time.
The producers should all have deposited some koha for the space into the 17 Tory St bank account for the space.
Most groups were very easy to deal with and worked well with the space, there was one group who was a bit more difficult and I don't think I would personally want to be involved if they were using the space again. (They rearranged the space without permission and did not put things back where they found them, I tried to put everything back to normal but I may have not got it completely right so sorry if your stuff has been moved around)
Lastly, I'm really sorry for leaving a bunch of booklets and posters in the space after my show finished on Saturday. I hit the wall after Fringe and was so exhausted and really should have gone back to clear them up, my plan was putting them out to recycle on the Tuesday after Fringe but I didn't get back into the space in time, and when I went back in today someone else had cleaned them up. So thanks to whoever did that.
For next year, if we are involved with Fringe I think it would be worth applying for some funding from CNZ. Some other venues do this and it works well for them.
Does anyone have any feedback or anything they want to say about Fringe at 17 Tory?
