The Macao City Fringe Festival, organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau, this year takes “Treasures Hunting” as its theme. It features a total of 23 memorable programmes, covering interactive performance, installations, exhibitions, dance, theatre, etc. In addition, the festival has a total of 10 outreach activities, ranging from workshops to talks.
Among the highlights for this year’s festival are “Jin-Tang”, a multimedia show by Taiwanese conceptual artist Ma Wei Yuan, mixing body language and instant synthetic images; and dance show “Idiot – Syncrasy”, presented by British duo Igor and Moreno. “My Old Man is a Bus Driver”, by Macao’s Dream Theater Association, is another performance worth experiencing, aiming as it does to take the audience on an actual two-hour drive around the city in the company of a retired bus driver, but with a theatrical twist.
