Tickets have been selling well for the programmes of the 16th Macao City Fringe Festival organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and co-orgainsed by the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau, since they became available in December. Tickets for some sessions of many programmes such as “Mobile Kitchen”, “Zuò Zuò Tea House”, “A Little Bird Lost Its Way”, “The Smooth Life” and “The Other Side of the Sacred” have been sold out already, with a few tickets left for the remaining sessions. The public are advised to purchase tickets as soon as possible.
The 16th Macao City Fringe Festival, which has taken “A Feast of Creativity! Bon Appétit!” as a slogan, will be held from 13 to 22 January 2017, offering 23 distinctive programmes and a total of 70 performances to indulge audiences in a delicious banquet of arts. Aside from “Mobile Kitchen” and “Zuò Zuò Tea House”, Circolando (Portugal)’s “Night” will debut on the first day of the Festival, featuring a trio of men who will encourage us, through their intensely physical and emotional dance, to question our language and aesthetics and to search for other ways. Also being presented will be the world-acclaimed performance “Antiwords”, where actresses will stimulate audience’s imagination with absurd humor as drunken characters through their simple dialogue and rich body language.
The Festival is now calling for registration for its first round of extended activities to be launched starting from 5th January next year. They include “Workshop on Environmental Dance Theatre”, in which participants will experience the true moment of dancing in the environment under the guidance of the experienced choreographers Nina Dipla and Candy Kuok, and may be selected to perform in “The Other Side of the Sacred”. In the “Thematic talks: Foreign Theatre – Body, Memory and Labour” under “Fringe Reviews 2017”, artists and performing groups of different fields will share their residential creation experiences from overseas.
