BLACTBOX Fringe Theatre

Since the 1960s, ACT has been entertaining the residents of the Saarland with comedies and dramas. Lately we have been putting on a main show each semester, sometimes full length plays and sometimes a series of short one-act plays. These plays are supported by a number of actors and a sizable crew led by the director: Fringe theatre. Fringe theatre is a term coined by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and it refers to theatre out of the mainstream. BLACTBOX is actor-led theatre, allowing for a small group of actors to work on an independent project.
