Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival showcases new and experimental work by local and international artists, challenges physical and artistic barriers, and creates opportunities for artists to meet and exchange ideas. It questions preconceived ideas of the performing arts, the relationship between artists and audience and shines a new light on arts and society. The festival favors innovative work, artists who take risks in their work and constantly look for new ways to express themselves.
For this year’s edition of the festival, the organisers particularly welcome performances that deal with the concept of a “Breaking Point”, exploring the theme on a broader social, global, or very intimate and personal level.
The organisers are looking for all forms of experimental performance work and physical- visual- and devised- theatre formats, which can contain (but are not limited to) drama, music, dance, acrobatics, installation/visual art and other cross-disciplinary elements. They are particularly interested in participatory, durational and/or site-specific formats.
Buffer Fringe 2018 is offering a fee of up to €800 plus airfare and accommodation (based on sponsorships) an opportunity to meet other artists, access to all other performances and parallel events of the festival, share your experience over social and networking events and an opportunity to expose your work to other international festival directors. A selection of 2-3 festival performances – selected by a committee of local and international performing arts professionals – will be given the opportunity to tour around Cyprus (and/or internationally to a selected European Partner Festival) as part of the Festivals ‘Buffer Fringe on Tour’ format.
