Call for Performers: National Storytelling Conference Fringe, August 2013, Richmond, Virginia

Fringe Performance Opportunity

NSN Conference – August 1–3, 2013

Richmond, VA

The Fringe @ the NSN is back for its 7th Season!
Explore the limits of storytelling at the National Storytelling Conference.



Want to present 55 minutes of your most compelling, riskiest, experimental or work in progress storytelling? How about a mini-fringe event with you and a friend in a pair of shorter performances? Just think of the possibilities: 55 minutes of folktales, autobiography, performance art, stand-up, puppetry, dance or your favorite long form story!


What is the Fringe? The NSN Conference Fringe follows the Fringe Festival model giving artists freedom to create and audiences "the ability to decide for themselves the truly great productions from the good, the bad and the gloriously disastrous." In keeping with the Fringe principle of an un-juried selection process, Fringe performers for the 2013 National Storytelling Network Conference will be selected by public lottery.


Growing networks of performance venues all over the world have adopted this model and many storytellers are taking advantage of these venues to reach new audiences. The Conference Fringe encourages more storytellers to participate in American and Canadian Fringe Festivals by providing the opportunity for you to experience many aspects of a typical Fringe Festival including the selection process and performance framework.


Deadline: October 31, 2012
