Fringe doesn’t end when the Festival finishes. Tour Ready works with artists to get their show on the road – literally.
First, our Tour Ready Info sessions are designed to give Fringe participants an insight into what programmers might be looking for, and how to develop work that’s ready to hit the road. Then we invite industry professionals and venue programmers from across Australia (and now, thanks to the internet, the world!) to come sniff out work they think the world needs to see. And then we play matchmaker, setting artists and delegates up for power-business-lunches (aka casual snacks and drinks) where they can close the deal. Tour Ready brings Fringe to the world.
We chose a bunch of excellent events from all over the globe this year for our Tour Ready awards. Turns out it’s not the best year to tour the globe. Who knew? Keep your eye out for them all in 2021, but in the meantime our 2020 Adelaide Fringe Tour Ready award winners The Dollar Bin Darlings present Mind the Dancer, a guided meditation to the dancefloor of your mind.
Fancy a little bit of digital dating? Our online tour ready speed dating session matches artists with programmers and presenters, to chat about future touring opportunities (and astrological compatibility, if you’re into that).
Tour Ready is presented with the support of the Monash University Centre for Theatre and Performance
