Seniors to show their potential at Fringe festival

2019-01-11 07:36     Comment:0

About a dozen local senior citizens in their 70s to 90s are quite possibly the oldest performers in this year’s Macau City Fringe Festival as they prepare for their show next weekend.

The 18th Macau City Fringe Festival, organised by the Cultural Affairs Bureau (ICM), opens today with performances and exhibitions taking place around the city until January 27.

Themed “Extra. Ordinary”, the bureau says that the festival allows the audience to break through restrictions and frameworks to rediscover the exceptional in everyday life, and percolate from theatre spaces into every corner of the city – liberating creativity, injecting changes to daily scenes, and ultimately turning art into a daily routine.
