welcome back...

...to the third annual FRINGE THEATRE EVENT — nine fabulous days of theatrical chaos in the heart of Edmonton's lively Old Strathcona district. Once again we've got a rich smorgasbord of activities to tempt even the most selective audience member — over 100 shows, nearly 500 performances of drama, comedy, dance, mime, music, the never-been-seen-before and the may-never-be-seen-again! And, new this year, the City of Edmonton has allowed us to close down 83 Avenue, between 103 and 104 Streets, to provide a huge outdoor stage for an incredible array of street entertainment. There are nine theatre spaces this year (some old, some new) and each one has shows starting around noon and running until after midnight. Some will delight you, some will shock you, some will have you rushing to tell your friends not to miss them...and, undoubtedly, some will have you rushing to the tents in the ETS parking lot for much-needed refreshment!

*

And those wise theatre-goers who have purchased this programme before the Fringe begins have a chance to win a free SUPER BUTTON which will admit you free-of-charge to each and every Fringe show. Two buttons will be given away at 11:00 a.m. SATURDAY, AUGUST 18 at the Gazebo. Your lucky number is on the front cover and, most important, you must be there to win!

*

This programme is as up-to-date as we could make it in advance — but there will undoubtedly be daily changes, deletions and substitutions. Best to check at Chinook Theatrelor up-to-the-minute information.

As you prepare to indulge, remember... *

*

All productions on the Fringe are created and developed by the artists themselves. We have made no artistic judgements — thafs your job! All ticket revenues go directly to the artists. There's no surcharge this year. Instead, we've sold you this programme and that money will go toward the ongoing support of the festival.

a

So, once again, it's over to you, our audience. Your tremendous support last year has made this Edmonton theatre party one of the largest festivals of its kind in North America. You've helped spawn new groups, encourage new artists and introduce a wide variety of new works. Take a moment to pat yourself on the back. Ifs because of you that THE FRINGE STRIKES AGAIN! Now get going — the actors, musicians, mimes, clowns and puppeteers are waiting to entertain you...Enjoy! Brian Paisley Producer

iribide

Sadly, there are two Fringees who won't be with us this year. Jennifer Orr and John Yamada were two dynamic people who contributed generously to the smile and heart of our community. Jen worked magic in the SummerFest office, John offered endless volunteer hours and both spent many happy days on the Fringe. They were a gifted, loving couple with a rare sense of humour and their absence is felt by all of us... Brian Paisley Sheldon Wilner

rock and a hard place sherri wells/conni massing edmonton "Caught between a rock and a hard place" aptly describes the dilemma of the modern woman torn between the extremes of traditional female roles and strident feminism. The show, ROCK AND A HARD PLACE, attempts to make an emphatic moderate statement - to make a stand on the issues without promoting extremes. We believe that there is strength and solidarity in the middle ground. Through our ability to laugh at ourselves and our mistakes, we come to understand the strength of moderation and compassion for everyone, male and female. This satiric revue follows the progress of numerous char-

acters, played by four actresses whose unique methods of dealing with "the dilemma" afford us both hilarity and pathos. 2 hours Saturday, August 18 Sunday, August 19 Monday, August 20 Tuesday, August 21 Wednesday, August 22 Thursday, August 23 Friday, August 24 Admission: $5.00 adults $4.00 stu/sen $4.00 equity

kirk miles/gil raby one yellow rabbit calgary Fringe veterans, One Yellow Rabbit, present the award winning play JUGGLER ON A DRUM. Dance, song, poetry and circus antics are combined with a realistic throughline to make JUGGLER ON A DRUM theatre in the fullest sense of the word. The work is inspired by the life of Dr. Norman Bethune, and explores his rebellion against the commonplace elements of his society. The heights of creative living are celebrated through the metaphorical image of a juggler balanced on a drum, and are juxtaposed with the life and perspective of a man who has been kissed by an angel on his deathbed.

It was meant as a satire, a tug at the world of performance art and those who live their lives as if they were pieces of performance art." - The Gazette.

"The play is very inventive, it's original, sarcastic, satirical, ifs a poke at society's never ending thirst in search for something new and different...

KOYAANISQATSI Ko-yaa-nis-cat-see — this unique film is an evocation of the Hopi Indian word meaning "life out of b a l a n c e " . Without dialogue or narrative structure it brings what are traditionally considered background elements — landscapes and cityscapes — to the fore in a mesmerizing rush of fast/slow motion time-lapse photography and sophisticated montages. With a relentlessly kinetic musical score by Philip Glass, KOYAANISQATSI debuted at the New York Film Festival, became a hit of the Berlin Festival, a n d won Best Film honours at the L.A. Filmex. Francis Ford Coppola even presents it! Don't miss this u n i q u e film e x p e r i e n c e . (1982. G o d f r e y Reggio. Classification TBA. 87 mins.)

9:00 & 11:30 pm EDMONTON PREMIERE

LIQUID SKY This cool, clever new wave sci-fi film may be the cult movie of the 80s. Independently made by a group of Soviet emigres, LIQUID SKY is the rather perverse story about an alien who lands in New York searching for a euphoria-inducing chemical secreted by the brain during orgasm — a chemical somewhat similar to heroin. The alien shadows a decadent new wave fashion model who produces a LOT of chemicals; when Margaret's pursuers make love to her, they suddenly dematerialize in an irridescent explosion. Beginning to enjoy her powers, Margaret becomes an avenger and eventually implores her alien visitor for final deliverance. This kinky fantasy is accruing critical a c c l a i m all over: "Genuinely startling! Visually bright a n d arresting. The right audiences are bound to appreciate the originality displayed here, not to mention the colour, rage, nonchalance, sly humour a n d ferocious fashion sense." (N.Y. TIMES) "Dazzling, shocking, funny a n d disturbing." (SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE) "The far-out stylistic (and maybe thematic) revelation of the year." (WASHINGTON POST) "The LIQUID SKY crew has a sense of humour." (WALL STREET JOURNAL) (1983. Slava Tsukerman. Classification TBA. 113 mins.)
