11am - 5.30pm
Having relaunched Exeter Fringe Festival in 2019, Alex & Elaine have recently decided to step away from running future festivals. With so many Devon-based artists and companies looking for the kind of development and performance opportunities that the Fringe had started to offer, a group of Exeter-based arts organisations has come together to make a smaller Fringe event happen this year, and to host a gathering, open to anyone involved or interested in theatre and performance in Exeter, to discuss the future of the Exeter Fringe and what we can do to continue to support performance artists based in the city.
We’re hosting a day of work-in progress performances at Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 23rd October 2022, the culmination of a week of residencies undertaken by the following Devon-based artists/companies after an open call out launched earlier this summer.
Schedule for the day:
11am – 12.30pm Sharing #1
Restless Theatre (Theatre Alibi)
Jeremy Holloway (Cygnet Theatre)
Ricochet Theatre (Kaleider)
The Yoko Situation (Exeter Phoenix)
Owl On The Roof Theatre (Exeter College)
2pm – 3.15pm Sharing #2
Break The Glass (Exeter Northcott Theatre)
Excessive Human Collective (Maketank)
Aimee Sweet (Exeter Library)
South West Dance Hub (The Hall)

4pm – 5.30pm Networking & open conversation hosted by PiE
After the sharings, there’ll be an opportunity to network and we’re delighted that Performance-in-Exeter (PiE) will also be hosting an open conversation style discussion on the future of Exeter Fringe and theatre-making within the city & surrounding areas.
