September is a celebration of culture as the Sydney Fringe Festival 2015  descends upon the city.  The full program has now been revealed for the five- week arts festival, with 300 productions spanning theatre, music, comedy, visual  art, film, cabaret, musical theatre, dance, circus, literature and poetry across over 50 venues.

A festival first, 2015 Sydney Fringe presents a Festival Village in Erskineville including pop­‐up spaces and street  activations breathing creative energy into the streetscapes of the Inner-­West.

The 2015 festival will see a succession of five weekly themes, opening with ‘The Inner City’, followed by ‘The Festival Heart’ in week two and ‘The  Treats  Continue’ in week three. The fourth week is focused on  family events and closing  week is dubbed as ‘The Last Days’.

Highlights  of  the  Festival  Program  include  Berlin  Performance  artist  Peter  Baecker  ‘living’  in  three  locations  across the festival.  Creating  living  installations  and  generating  good  vibes  across  Sydney,   Baecker’s  main  home   at  Broadway,   Sydney’s  CBD  from   7th  September,  is  a  place  for  Fringe   audiences  and  city  visitors  to  interact  with  the  International  performer  and  become  a  part  of  the   Sydney  Fringe  creative  process.

Yoke Pop-­Up Magazine will present a series of events as part of Pop-­Up Fringe.  Partnering  with   Artereal  Gallery,  Yoke  brings  a  series  of  provocative  artist-­‐led  conversations  and  performances.   Other  events  will  include  Yoga  Under  The  Stars,  a  Beautiful  Pages  pop-­‐up  store,  Your  Gut  Feeling  –   a  panel  discussion  with  health  and  food  gurus  and  The  Ultimate  Balancing  Act  –  a  free  event  with   Sydney  Fringe  Director  Kerri  Glasscock  and  other  women  on  the  work-­‐life  balance.

Spanning  the  five  weeks  of  Sydney  Fringe  Festival  will  also  be  a  range  of  Artist  Master  Classes, including lessons on creating terrariums, candle-­making and resin jewellery-­making.
