Pink Fringe is dedicated to supporting Queer and LGBT performance projects in Brighton (www.pinkfringe.org.uk). Pink Fringe is based at the Marlborough Theatre, one of the early meeting places of the modern gay rights movement in Sussex (www.marlboroughtheatre.org.uk) and a beautiful little theatre in the heart of Brighton.
Pink Fringe has had a dead exciting first year, making Queer and LGBT performance happen in Brighton. We are getting pretty bloody good at it too, having worked with world-renowned artists like Neil Bartlett, Bette Bourne and Diane Torr.
Following the success of its Premiere Season for Brighton Festival Fringe 2010, the Marlborough Lights event for White Night 2010 and the Lip Schtick season marking LGBT History Month 2011, Pink Fringe are launching Unknown Pleasures a programme of new work for the Fringe Festival.
So what's new and exciting about Pink Fringe this year then?
The fringe is the time for new experiences and we have five brand new pieces of work that have developed in Brighton, at the Marlborough Theatre. From the cosmic spoken word of Nick Field; the curiosities of The Boutique; Miss Hope Springs' faded glamour and the Short and Girlies encouraging a lesbian comedy renaissance. Oh and did we mention Herman Melville’s Billy Budd in a bathtub? All of these artists have bold new voices and we are proud to be supporting their work.
Pink Fringe is currently planning an ambitious new piece of outdoor performance to be presented in response to Brighton Pride 2011.
Tickets for all events in the Unknown Pleasures programme are available from www.brightonfestivalfringe.org.uk or from the Fringe Festival Ticket Hotline: 01273 917272. Tickets are also available on the door, at the theatre box office, 30 minutes prior to a performance starting. As we have limited seating, advance booking is recommended.
