Fringe Director Jorian Gardner today announced the appointment of Amy Louise Dunham to the position of Creative Producer for the February 2014 event.
“Amy is a well-loved and accomplished young artist working across a range of fields including theatre, live music and dance,” said Gardner. “Aside from her artistic talent, she’s as enthusiastic about Canberra’s arts scene as I am – especially live music – and is the perfect choice to have on board as the one of the leaders of this years event.”
Dunham is well known to Canberra audiences having picked up a number of awards for her musical theatre performances in some of the ACT’s major theatre productions over the years. As well, her live music duo, AMAX, have a large and enthusiastic following across the ACT for their poignant, funny – and kick ass gigs.
“I am blown away to work on this years festival,” said Dunham, “I am passionate about the large amount of young and emerging artists we have here in the ACT and how we can better expose them to the wider public. Can’t wait.”
Amy Dunham will be producing a multitude of Fringe theatre, performance art and live music events over the four days of Fringe as well as performing as part of the Die Fringe Burlesque show on Friday the 8th of February.
“Fringe 2014 is probably the biggest challenge I have taken on, ” said Dunham. “The return of the festival to its rightful place in Civic Square alongside the National Multicultural Festival is such an awesome thing for the Canberra community – get ready to party!”
