World Fringe Day Sharing
Room 1006, Block C, Great China International Finance Center, Caitian Rd, Futian District, Shenzhen, China
The origin of the Fringe Festival dates back to 1947, when eight groups of theatre groups were not invited to perform at the Edinburgh International Festival, when a Scottish playwright and journalist used fringe (intentional: edge, Wheat ears) symbolize this cultural phenomenon, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Today, more than 200 countries around the world hold the Fringe Festival, which has become one of the world's most popular art events.
Since its entry into Shenzhen in 2010, the Fringe Festival has continued the spirit of diversity, pioneering and freedom of the world's Fringe. It attracts numerous artistic expressions with an open, inclusive and independent attitude, and focuses on the creativity and explosiveness of the city of Shenzhen.
On July 11, 2018, we once again celebrate World Fringe Day with the organizers of the Fringe Festival around the world.
