show your intention to be part of the NAF Fringe in 2021
Our approach to receiving your proposals to present work on the Fringe has changed. This Expression of Interest form is our first engagement with fringe artists and producers, and we will follow up with you to discuss the options and costs once we have established the demand for live and digital Fringe productions.
As you know, the feasibility of hosting a live festival will depend on South Africa’s status with regard to COVID-19 regulations. The Festival team is also still establishing what venues and dates may be available for the 2021 Festival given the disruptions to the school and university calendars.
This form invites you to express your interest in participating in the Fringe 2021, either live or digitally, and give us some information about what work you are considering presenting on this year’s Fringe.
In response to your Expression of Interest, we will to secure venues for the presentation of live work and record live works or create fully digital works in dispersed venues across the country. With your feedback we are will be able to determine to what extent we can subsidise filming and/or venue hire fees in this difficult time for our sector. At this stage we have not determined registration fees (if any) for live work on the Fringe and will continue to offer our vFringe platform free of charge with a 90/10 revenue split in favour of artists.
Please note that this Expression of Interest does not commit you in any way to presenting work or paying fees of any kind.
