Bringing independent and alternative theatre, comedy, and dance to Charlottetown, August 29 - 31, 2013, The Island Fringe Festival’s mandate is to give local artists the opportunity to create and perform new work. Simultaneously, the Island Fringe gives other Canadian and International theatre companies a chance to bring their shows to PEI and make connections with Island artists.
As a site-specific festival, we create venues out of pre-existing, non-theatrical spaces. Inspired by the unconventional shows that Fringe Festivals are famous for, we at the Island Fringe seek out equally unconventional venues. Shows are staged in indoor and outdoor spaces throughout downtown Charlottetown. 2012 IFF show venues included a coffee shop, the wharf, and one of the town squares. A main goal of the Festival is to get the community involved. By staging the shows in pre-existing, local spaces, it’s an opportunity to honour what we have while celebrating the creation of something new.
