View a whole set of Fringe 2012 madness from Edinburgh Scotland here. If you do Twitter add me here. August, always a mad busy crazy time in Edinburgh, during the festival and fringe, which seems to have grown even bigger than the tattoo and festival. There's no shortage of talent and satire here!. Part of the Free Fringe, the New Zealand company Trick of the Light Theatre has travelled across the world to tell a wonderful story of maps and roads that exist only if you know where to look for them. And if you follow them, the consequences may be more real than you expected. The starting point of the story is the paper roads of New Zealand – roads that were built and drawn in on several maps but never materialised as the money was missing. Conjuring up a visual imagery that switches between episodic temporaries in refreshing ways, The Road that Wasn’t There imagines what would happen if one did indeed follow one of these paper roads off the edge of the real world. The story centres on Maggie, who as a young girl follows one of these paper roads leading off behind the graveyard on her way to work for her family. She finds everything she has always wanted, but is drawn further and further away from the real world and into this wondrous world where time stands still. Performed through acting, puppetry and shadow theatre, the story is woven into a contemporary plot where her grown-up son is moving her to an old people’s home to protect her from her fantasies. As the two stories unfold, we learn something both about reality and about responsibility, love, and the changes that have occurred between generations. The Road That Wasn’t There played at the Free Sisters venue until the 26 August as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe (The Fringe) is the world's largest arts festival, with the 2012 event spanning 25 days totalling over 2,695 shows from 47 countries in 279 venues. Established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place annually in Scotland's capital, in the month of August. The Fringe is a showcase for the performing arts, particularly theatre and comedy (which has seen substantial growth in recent years), although dance and music are also represented. In 2012, 36% of shows were comedy and 28% theatrical productions. Theatrical productions range from the classics of ancient Greece to William Shakespeare, Samuel Beckett and contemporary works. In 2012, 1,418 shows were having their world première. The Fringe is an unjuried festival – with no selection committee, and therefore any type of performance may participate. The Fringe has often showcased experimental works that might not be invited to a more conservative arts festival. In addition to ticketed, programmed events, the Festival has included a street fair, located primarily on the Royal Mile. The Festival is organized by the Festival Fringe Society, which publishes the programme, sells tickets, and offers advice to performers. Their offices are on the Royal Mile.
