Bath Fringe 2014 will run
Friday May 23 - Sunday June 8
Sarah's excellent Bedlam videos
It's taken us a while to remember to post them here, but if you're passing, these new youtube numbers from mallabar films are well worth your time:
youtu.be/cYSal2pOkpY a neat 3 and a half minute impression of Bedlam in action.
youtu.be/VPIf6Dk5-LY an ace fast-cutting taster.
And youtu.be/UkU4gYWZ8aE for an in-depth version of Marie-Louise Flexon's Chaplin character.
And while we were connecting those up, YouTube pointed us to a couple of Bedlam films from 2012 that we'd not seen before:
youtu.be/mdylahxSGGk is a film of the Bath College extraordinary rendition of Kafka last year .
Or look at youtu.be/a6Z2TrUrAXk for a little film of Ramshacklicious last year, their odd music number.
Welcome to Bath Fringe Festival
Bath Fringe is a 17-Day festival of all the artforms we can find (and some that don't have names yet) in the Beautiful City of Bath, with the collaboration of many of its Beautiful & Talented population.
Bath Fringe 2013 runs from Friday May 24 to Sunday June 9, 2013 (and even a few days either side)Currently peaking somewhere around 200 events (including a wholefestival), featuring performers from around the world and from next door, in places from the Spiegeltent, to the secret rooms of Bath, to the streets and cafés, and of course in all the city's best venues...
10 days of Spiegeltent including: Georgie Fame, Get The Blessing, Gas Giants, Smerin's Anti-Social Club, Sam Lee, Noel Britten & Friends Konkoma, Hoochie Coochie Kabaret, Joe Driscoll & Seckou Kouyate, Anthony Joseph, Hollie Cook and Mono the Monkey! Kids' Festival including the return of The Talent Show!
Other exciting projects include extra new shows, sites and days for Bedlam Fair, our street weekend, and the return to drama of no less than Bath's original Old Theatre Royal [aka. Masonic Hall], including an immersive festival of New Writing and a big weekend of new work. See under'events' on the menu to the left of this page.
