NEST March 25, 26, 27 - STF 2022 Fringe Submissions! Here's mine: "A Greek Grows in Brooklyn - By way of story, authentic artifacts, photos and song, Barbara shares pivotal, poignant moments in her Greek American odyssey, from a small Island in the Aegean to nationally acclaimed Bilingual (English/ASL) Storyteller/Thespian/Impresario! Be prepared to get up and dance. Opa!
What is a Fringe, anyway??
A Fringe is an opportunity to showcase performances that are one or more of the following:
Unconventional pieces in topic or presentation
To get your imagination sparked, here are some examples one might consider:
A string of stories on a theme that ties the show together
A long form fictional, personal or historical story/program
A story told in mime
A story that includes a multi-media aspect or incorporates other modalities aside from spoken word (music, movement, etc)
All Fringe performances at Sharing The Fire should be related to storytelling in some fashion.
All Fringe performances should be performance ready. While the show can be a works-in-progress, it should be in a presentable stage. Simply talking about your project is not acceptable.
How are Fringe shows for Sharing The Fire selected? Glad you asked!
Fringe submissions are randomly chosen by lottery. They’re not vetted. Everyone has an equal chance to be selected!
However, if you are selected for the Olio performance you are not eligible for a Fringe in order to allow as many people as possible to have an opportunity to perform and strut their stuff!
There will be 8-9 Fringe slots, depending upon the schedule. They will be held concurrently with the workshops or swaps.
The Fringe performances can be between 45 minutes to 90 minutes in length. This can include a Q & A, a participatory component, etc. The performance does not need to fill the whole 90 minutes.
TO SUBMIT, PLEASE SEND:
The title of the Fringe performance (or working title). Make it tantalizing!
Name(s) of performer(s)
A short description of the piece (this will appear in the program, if selected)
