The Scranton Fringe Festival is hosting a mini-virtual theatre Festival via the ever popular video game, Animal Crossing New Horizons. This expiremental approach to creative works isn’t the first to be presented via ACNH (nor even the first Fringe Festival) but we hope for it to be one of the larger and most unique ventures – and we are seeking submissions to help complete our programming for this special project!

WHEN?
Friday February 26th thru Sunday February 28th 2021 (exact performance/streaming times per performer will vary, see application for more info).

HOW DOES IT WORK?
We are seeking theatre/fringe artists of all genres. You would perform an approx. 15 to 20 minute “show” or set (amongst others in a longer variety performance) online over Zoom (where the AUDIO would be pulled from) and via the game (where the videos VISUALS would be simultaneously pulled from) that would be live-streamed out to Facebook and YouTube so all could watch, regardless of owing AC.

You do NOT need to own this game – but access to a good laptop or tablet and WIFI is vital.

WHAT KIND OF WORK ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Anything you’d do (or have been) doing online can work (or share with us a new concept)!
We are seeking diverse, dynamic and unique performers who are eager to keep the arts alive even online. Stand up, storytellers, drama, musical acts, circus, performance art or anything else that would happen at a Fringe Festival is desired! Any artist in any corner of the world is welcome to submit!

Please note each “act” should be approx. 10 to 15 minutes long (limited exceptions will be made on a case by case basis).

PAYMENT?
Payment totals are being sorted and will be quite modest, but we do have a private sponsor helping so a minimum stipend will be offered + tips from the audience. Payment details will be communicated upon formal acceptance into this project.

WHAT IS SCRANTON FRINGE?
We are an arts organization dedicated to supporting our bold artists and brave audiences since our initial formation in 2015. While we conduct numerous year round programming – our flagship event is a large, multi-venue and multi-day Festival of the performing arts that typically occurs each fall in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania USA. To learn more about our work and how we’ve adapted due to the ongoing pandemic, please visit www.scrantonfringe.org!
