Critical Report from the World Fringe Congress
When infringement festival founder Donovan King was invited to the first-ever World Fringe Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland, he thought there had been a mistake!
With over 50 so-called “Fringe” Festivals in attendance, including those named after or run by corporations, the infringement provided a critical look at how cultural history is repeating itself. As the original Fringe gets co-opted and loses its edge, artists are fuming that their theatrical playground has been compromised and is no longer affordable or inclusive.
Learn about the controversial history of the Fringe and infringement festivals and pressing cultural issues in this critical and theatrical report! You also can read the written report and send your concerns with King to the 2nd World Fringe Congress, to which he has been invited in August, 2014!
