Sydney Fringe may not be taking place as planned in 2020, but it is partnering with Fringe festivals around the world to present Global Fringe.

The festival will run across four weeks, each week representing a new theme.

Sydney Fringe has partnered with Brighton, New Zealand, San Diego, Stockholm and Hollywood to bring audiences performances streamed into the comfort of their own living rooms.

"Forging a new way forward in an unknown world requires strength in numbers, after all we are most certainly all in this together," Sydney Fringe CEO and Festival Director Kerri Glasscock says.

"As we enter this new phase we are eternally grateful for the incredible community of parters we have supporting us, and we look forward to talking to you soon about new plans and the future. Until then sit back and enjoy all our offerings in September at Global Fringe."

Taking the 2020 programme out with a bang is week four's theme: The Queer And The Camp. It's a whimsical, heartfelt celebration of nostalgia and memory, and the small joys in life and love. In celebration of Sydney queer underground, Maeve Marsden hosts 'Queers On The Fringe'. . . Stories from a mixed bag of local artists, writers, comedians and musicians.

Meanwhile, TOOT takes us back to our teenage bedrooms with 'Be Here Now', a comic yet tender look at the influence music has on our lives. And to see out the night, Thick And Tight returns with 'An Evening With… Di & Marilyn', a rapturous half-hour of dance, drag and tragedy.
