Forest Fringe at the GateFriday, 23 March, 2012
April 9 – April 21
Forest Fringe is bringing two whole weeks of new, experimental work to London, each night featuring a headline act alongside an array of talks, films, music and work-in-progress performances.
The first week has been curated by the writer and performer Chris Thorpe, a founder member of Unlimited Theatre. Each night Chris will be telling a different story, by turns funny, harrowing and brilliantly absurd, alongside an eclectic line-up of writers, performers and poets.
In the second week you can see dancer Dan Canham’s Edinburgh hit 30 Cecil Street, a moving and lyrical evocation of a derelict theatre in Limerick in Ireland. Dan has curated a range of pieces to complement the themes and ideas behind his own work, from lectures to work-in-progress performances to experimental films.
The line-up features some familiar Forest Fringe regulars, including Chris Goode, Melanie Wilson and Third Angel’s Alex Kelly. More available on the website www.forestfringe.co.uk
