The Buffer Fringe Performing Arts Festival continues to bridge the divide in Cyprus and responding to the needs of the time, by bringing artists and audiences together from around the world in 2020 with an innovative artistic program, presented on the brand new festival blog.
By rising to the challenges presented by the Covid-19 and the restrictions in crossings, the blog is a new addition to the Buffer Fringe. Furthermore, the blog was developed to draw attention to the value of artistic creation and to provide an alternative platform where the artists can share their creative process behind their performances under the theme “Displacement”. The live festival will be presented on stage in early December, island wide.
The Buffer Fringe Blog can be accessed at www.bufferfringe.org where all details about this year’s edition, performers and performances can be found, as well as with the artists’ work in progress and their creative process. The festival is collaborating with notable Fringe festivals around the world including the Stockholm Fringe Festival and the Nordic Fringe Network, İstanbul Fringe Festival, arts organizations and educational institutions such as Point Centre for Contemporary Art, Brandeis University (IMPACT programme for Arts, Culture and Conflict Transformation), the European Cultural Foundation, the Goethe Institute, Open University of Cyprus’ Theatre Studies MA programme, and others.
