Welcome to the Camden Fringe website. The full programme of events for 2008 is online now.

The Camden Fringe 2008 takes place from Monday 28th July until Sunday 24th of August. There will be 316 performances of 100 different shows across 3 venues over 4 weeks, so there should be something to whet every appetite.

We have collected together a huge array of exciting and experimental new theatre, comedy, musicals, poetry, improvisation and story-telling. There are also a couple of children’s shows in there, and a spot of opera.

The Camden Fringe has been set-up by It’s Alright For Some Ltd, who run the Etcetera Theatre in Camden and have been producing comedy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival since 2002.

The first Camden Fringe took place in August 2006 at the Etcetera Theatre and included 57 performances by 22 acts over a 4 week period.

This year the Camden Fringe will expand to include more venues, more performances and more opportunities for new acts to get themselves noticed in a creative environment outside of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Productions include; Hamlet abridged The Filthy Pilgrim, Playlist, Chris Neill's Got a Bun in the Oven, Fringe the Musical, Chambers and Nettleton, Becky & Naomi: Brainwashed, Robin Ince's School for Gifted Children, Elektra, Cradle and Fall and many many more.

Hello from Head - Langue theatre, Paris
We are performing our visual, burlesque touching and fun show "les anges de L'Enfer (angels of the underground)" at the Camden Fringe festival from the 17 -20 th of August.

Les Anges De l’Enfer

Les Anges De l’Enfer (Angels of the underground) is a visual quest which explores the subterrainian life of the Paris Metro. Five performers transform the everyday into a beautifully grotesque masquerade through physicality, masks, burlesque buffoonary, poetic play and the lambada!  We present extra-ordinary ordinary characters. We examin their dreams and their harsh realities. Les Anges de L’enfer is a textless world, which is far from silent. It reflects the profound hustle and bustle that words cannot reach. The words only come when there is nothing left to say.

We are strangers huddled together in the dirt and noise and stink. Our protector: the tin can in which we jostle for arm space. Our individual lives scurry secretively around our heads like the rats scurrying in the dark under the belly of the beltching people carrying metal dragon. We hold onto our secrets, clasping at them like the bags we hold tightly at our chests. We try hard not to touch, not to see our fellow inhabitants of the moving machine, but knees are brushed and angry looks are thrown. At last the sound of the doors closing. We hold our breaths so as to not breath in each others already breathed in air. We are hurtled into the dark under the city, under our real lives. We journey together going from one tiled platform to the next, an oblong of light, of hope in the obscure unreality of this crowded solitude . Finally it is our turn to be released. We spill out hurrying upwards, searching for breath again.
But what of the others? The people who live in the dark? The passengers, the drivers, the drunks, the players of music, the screamers and the silent starerers? The sleepers on the platforms? These are the angels of the underground, sweeping daily, briefly through our lives. Les Anges de l’Enfer opens up this hidden underworld like a child lifting the roof off a dolls house and invites you to join us on our journey into the secret lives of these ordinary angels.

Le métro est un cauchemar, un rêve, c’est l’enfer et nous ? Nous sommes des anges de l’enfer

Cool Running Productions respectfully presents Your Viewing Pleasure, all the lowest-communal-denominator joy of Saturday night TV without the inconvenience of actually sitting on your sofa.  With the playfulness of Python and the balls of Brass Eye, this is Round the Horne for the unashamedly horny.  Salty, satirical and sarky as hell, this simultaneously affectionate and vicious parody of modern broadcasting is post-Norton, postmodern, and definitely post-watershed. This is reality TV in a theatre.

Running as part of the Camden Fringe Festival at the Etcetera Theatre, nightly at 6pm from 15 - 17 August.  All tickets £7.50.

Be there, or be a shape with four sides of equal length!
