Before the fall semester starts for students studying abroad in London, Ithaca College’s honors program and theater arts department sponsor a four-day trip to Edinburgh, Scotland’s famous Fringe Festival—the world’s largest arts festival.
Among the performers were comedians Eddie Izzard and Greg Proops, actress Jennifer Coolidge, and actor Alan Cumming. “There is such high energy,” says Rachel Ciborowski ’12, who attended the Fringe last fall. “And there are tons of people from all over the world.” With an average of more than a thousand performances a day at the Fringe, students immerse themselves in a variety of artistic performances. “It fits all tastes,” says Hallie Peterson ’12. “You can see comedy, musicals, circus shows, experimental theater—anything.”
