Sydney Fringe Festival 2019

Date: 1 Aug 2019

Sydney Fringe celebrates its 10th anniversary this year with a diverse program of performance, music, theatre, comedy, visual art, film, dance, circus, literature and poetry.

More than 342 shows will be offered including 120 world premieres, 129 Australian premieres and a further 38 Sydney premieres across 1360 performance sessions.

Fringe launches with FRINGE IGNITE, the Festival’s official opening party on 1 September. In partnership with Kings Street Crawl it will fill the entire length of Newtown’s King Street with live music catering for all ages. The line-up includes D.C Cross, Darby, Elizabeth Fader, Kesmar, Lady King, Little Quirks, Ross Tipper, Taj Ralph, The Good Boys, The Van Demons, with more to be announced.

In celebration of Fringe’s roots, the Newtown precinct returns in 2019 and continues to be activated throughout the month of September. Fringe will present new opportunities as well as amplify annual offerings with over 192 events across 22 inner-west venues, highlighting the precinct and filling local businesses, shopfronts and bars with live music and comedy.

The precinct will include the return of the Emerging Artist Share House with World’s Best/Worst House Party, an immersive theatre event that is part-party, part-theatre show and part-house meeting.

The Innocent Bystanders Touring Hub at the Old 505 Theatre, Newtown will expand onto two stages, with a program of award-winning performances touring from Fringe festivals around the world. It will feature 10 theatre works, hand-picked by Festival Director, Kerri Glasscock, including:

UK-based The Flanagan Collective and Gobbledigook Theatre’s sister productions re-telling the ancient myths of Orpheus and Eurydice.

Scottish Collective 21CC’s The Ballad of the Apathetic Son and His Narcissistic Mother, the story of a mother and son who create a performance inspired by their shared love for singer Sia, and her hair.

Sandy Greenwood’s dynamic one woman show Matriarch, that illuminates the strength and resilience of four generations of Gumbaynggirr women from the 1940s to the present day.

Award-winning UK based MALAPROP Theatre Company’s LOVE+, a one-woman two-hander about the inevitability of human-robot relationships.
