Overview

The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the oldest and most prestigious fringe festival in the world. Students will have the opportunity to see world-class performances from all corners of the globe while touring the amazing city of Edinburgh. Students will be based out of our Alnwick campus, which will also allow students the opportunity to experience the Alnwick Castle and town. Edinburgh is about 2 hours away from the castle, so students will have ample time to see both sites. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is a truly international festival. Not only will students experience British culture, they will engage with performance work from around the globe. This is an exciting opportunity for students to understand themselves in context with a larger reality! This is not a program you will want to miss out on! 

The Alnwick program takes place in northern England inside the castle that is home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland. To many, it is also known as “the Harry Potter Castle.”  Students take classes while living inside the castle in order to get a better understanding of British Culture. A few of the places students can visit include Hadrian’s Wall, The Lake District, London, and Edinburgh.

Academics

Students will take CMST 410: Contemporary Issues in Performance - Performance on the Fringe. 

The Performance on the Fringe course focuses on works at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as acts of radical aesthetic communication, designed to push the boundaries of both art and culture.  In order to better understand the performances we will see, we will examine the history of fringe festivals, performance art, and their cultural contexts from the early 20th century to the present.  Most of our time will be spent at the festival itself, viewing and discussing live fringe performances.

Attractions  

Not only will students have time to explore the Alnwick Castle and the overall town of Alnwick, but also daily trips to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival! 


Housing

SCSU students live in dormitory-styled rooms inside of Alnwick Castle. Single rooms are available upon request for an extra cost, but the typical dorm rooms fit two to four students in them. On the castle grounds there is a kitchen, dining hall, recreation room, laundry room, and library.
