March Madness has well and truly come to an end for the year, but if you missed the Adelaide Fringe season, they will be returning in the comfort of your home! The Fringe Team has developed a pilot of an online digital experience called Adelaide FringeVIEW, and you can get involved during self-isolation.
Adelaide FringeVIEW is inviting artists of any genre to register a video as a Fringe event that would be performed on stage. The video can be made specifically for the registration (the more creative the better!) or a highlight reel can be made from previous Fringe performances. It is free to register as an artist and FringeVIEW is an open-access platform, so anyone can get involved.
Adelaide FringeVIEW has been designed as an experiment to create a new income stream for artists still looking to perform while restrictions are in place, with audiences asked to buy a ticket and help support the industry.
“It is all about coming together to show support for artists in this time when all their performances, gigs, tours and festivals have been cancelled,” says Adelaide Fringe director Heather Croall. “We are hoping that Adelaide FringeVIEW might help create job opportunities and income for both artists and others in the broader creative, technology sector.”
Artist registrations for the new platform will open on Wednesday the 15th of April via the Adelaide Fringe Artist, Venues and Delegate Registration system (AVR).
Fringe Members have exclusive access to tickets for Adelaide FringeVIEW from April 29, 2020, with the platform officially live to the general public on Friday, May 1, 2020, with the virtual experience expected to end at the end of the month.
