Berkshire Fringe Goes International, Also Plans Original Work [Berkshire on Stage]
The 8th Annual Berkshire Fringe Festival goes international as it programs three weeks of mind blowing original performances by emerging theater artists from the United Kingdom, Korea and the United States. The expanded format includes an expanded series of performances, an international artist in residency program and the world premiere of a new play by Fringe Co-Founding Artistic Directors Timothy Ryan Olson, Sara Katzoff and Peter Wise.
Sara Katzoff notes that “We are finally producing our own creative work. Ryan’s writing, I am acting, Pete’s composing original songs and music, and the whole thing is being developed by a team of outstanding Berkshire based artists and designers.”
Taking place July 23 – August 13 in the Daniel Arts Center at Simon’s Rock, Great Barrington, MA the festival will host five artists and ensembles from the United Kingdom, Korea and the United States.
In addition to presenting 5 full-length original plays, a selected group of artists have also been invited to the Fringe campus to engage in an intensive three-week residency program where they will be given time, space and resources to develop their newest works.
