The Garage International
<Performing Arts Worldwide>
Come park your hopes and dreams with us and join us for the summer festivals.
The Garage International is a professional venue run by an international
catering to the needs of an international artist.
Our image is the eternal fire burning bright that destroys all boundaries
and borders, social morals and taboos.
We invite the controversial and the radical as long as you believe
in what you have to say and what you do. Also remember that the
tamest traditional thing can be just as unique in this chaotic world.
In 1999 we were proud to host 30 companies from over 10 different countries
in theatre, dance, music, physical theatre, mime, and marionette theatre
Every show got reviewed at least once.
In 1998 we were the recipient of the 'Spirit of the Fringe ' award.
"Fringe Nirvana" said the Scotsman. We have been listed
in the top major venues
of the festival by the Guardian newspaper.
We then proceeded to the Avignon Public Off Festival in 2001
and then to the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2002 and then to the
Montreal Fringe Festival in 2003.
We have now started the Tokyo Fringe Festival and the Kyoto Fringe Festival.
Currently we are operating in 4 festivals encompassing 3 continents.
Each festival and location has its own special feel and uniqueness about
It is impossible to say which is better. All of them have a special place
as all of us have a special place in this world.
Since the Fringe in Edinburgh started in 1947, its motive and aim was to give
a new experience to those who came, to share something special, to challenge
and to dare to experiment, and not be afraid of failure. Though we may
be starting to enter into a new era, this will never change.
Artists have come from as far as the other side of the world to share
their thoughts and dreams.
Audiences have come equally as far to listen.
The Garage International is here to receive and embrace all.
We will keep growing, nourished by you -
--both artists and audience.
