Northern Thailand's First English-language theater company
Coming up next. . .
The EXIT Theatre of San Francisco along with The Gate Theater Group of Chiang Mai will present Chiang Mai’s first annual Festival for the Performing Arts at the KAD Studio Theatre and selected satellite locations nearby. The festival will run from October 24-27 from 12:00 pm until 9:30 pm each day. Applications will be accepted using a “first come, first served” selection process, so it is advisable that all applicants get their applications turned in as early as possible to be among those selected in this process. Applications are being accepted via this link until September 1st. In the event of an overflow of artists, we will use a lottery system to decide which performers will be featured.
Performers in the Fringe Festival receive two or more 60 minute performance slots. Additional performance slots may become available depending upon the number of performers who apply. The slots include limited technical support for lighting and sound and front of house staff. In order to help cover this service, applicants will be charged a 700 baht application fee and a 300 baht performance fee if they are selected to perform in the festival.
Performers or groups will choose their own ticket price of up to 400 baht and receive 100% of that amount paid to them. In the event that performers don’t hold a valid work permit, they must work with a Thai representative.
The Chiang Mai Fringe Festival is proudly open to a wide range of performers and groups of artists working independently in traditional forms as well as outside traditional forms. All performance styles are encouraged, from the avant-garde to the family friendly. Traditional and street theater, storytelling, dance/movement, experimental music, video/film, performance art, poetry, puppetry, comedy and improv, art installations, circus and cabaret.
Good luck to all of our performers! We can’t wait to see what you have planned for Chiang Mai’s first annual Fringe Festival for the performing arts!
