Over the course of 10 nights Sydney Fringe Festival will bring a special run of over 100 shows to The Rocks under the Sydney Fringe Sideshow banner at the end of February & into early March.
A new event, produced by Sydney Fringe, in collaboration with Placemaking NSW and the New South Wales Government CBD Revitalisation Program, Sydney Fringe Sideshow will have Sydney’s historic precinct, The Rocks pumping with an extravaganza of darkly cool comedy, theatre, music, dance, immersive performance, projection and installation works.
Minister for Enterprise, Investment and Trade and Minister for Tourism and Sport, Stuart Ayres said it was exciting to see major events returning to Sydney’s streets and venues, helping to support tourism and vital jobs within the arts sector.
“Intimate events like the Sydney Fringe Sideshow are a great way to showcase an amazing array of live entertainment talent and as we continue to work our way through this stage of the pandemic it’s fantastic to see the arts sector continue to adapt to help us have fun and celebrate in the safest way possible.”
Australia’s most exciting talents will bring the party with live entertainment across three main Sideshow venues on George Street: The Terraces, The Old Observer, The Old Coroner’s Court plus a secret location The Gallery.
Sideshow goers can walk from one venue to the other to discover curious and exciting acts, performances, and projections, traversing secret laneways, and iconic historic venues, with fun to be found around every corner.
Kerri Glasscock, Chief Executive Officer of Sydney Fringe said, “Sydney Fringe is delighted to partner with the NSW Government to support literally hundreds of artists in this exciting activation. The last couple of years have been tremendously difficult for large scale public events and festivals, and Sideshow has been created in response to the continuing difficulties.”
