Buffer Fringe Festival is a performing arts festival taking place in and around the buffer zone in Nicosia, Cyprus. It showcases new and experimental work by local and international artists. It challenges physical and artistic barriers, creates opportunities for artists to meet and exchange ideas. It questions preconceived ideas of the performing arts, the relationship between artists and audience and shines a new light on arts and society. Buffer Fringe Festival favours innovative work, artists who take risks in their work and constantly look for new ways to express themselves. It is one of a kind in Cyprus.
