New Zealand/New York based writer and director, Eleanor Bishop's Jane Doe is a participatory theatre show reflecting on rape culture in our communities. As one performer leads a public reading of a rape trial script, the audience members read as witnesses and lawyers, feeding in live responses via their phones.

Maggot, by New Zealanders Angela Foughy, Elle Wootton and Freya Finch, is an anarchic sketch show that merges clown, dance and character comedy. The company were winners of the 'Adelaide Fringe Tour Ready Award' and nominated for 'Most Promising Emerging Company' at NZ Fringe 2017.

The Break Up [We Need to Talk] by New Zealand company Binge Culture lovingly creates and destroys an entire relationship from scratch in five hours with one desperate conversation.

28-30 September

Event Details:

The Sydney Fringe Festival is now the largest independent arts festival in NSW, representing thousands of artists across all art forms. It has built a reputation for nurturing and supporting emerging artists, presenting established artists in the development of new works, promoting small to medium sized venues and activating public spaces. In addition to the presentation of art, this festival engages the local community of residents and supports small business and night-time economy. This festival aims to give a voice to those who produce work all year round and compete with main stage events for publicity, and large corporations for custom. This festival represents the cultural heart of the city and celebrates all things Sydney from local community groups to well-known touring artists. The Sydney Fringe Festival is proudly supported by the City of Sydney.
