“Experiment Human is an extremely well-made, bold, unique, surreal comedy that explores the things that make us human, and what makes us happy. The team holding it up are incredible and the central performances extremely admirable.” - Everything Theatre.
Brighton Fringe were delighted to return to present the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at Edinburgh Fringe. The Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence has been running since 2011, and this year we were proud to be presenting the award in association with The Rotunda Theatre.
The Rotunda Theatre launched at Buxton Festival Fringe 2017 with their 120-seat geodesic dome and have gone on to host hundreds of up-and-coming acts and established companies in their pop-up space. At Brighton Fringe 2022 they ran two pop-up domes, Bubble & Squeak (120 & 50).
