Sad tale about Remarkable Arts

THE Scotsman reports today that Remarkable Arts, the company that ran an excellent programme at St George's West on the 2011 Fringe, is in financial trouble.

The story is here.

The venue, which hosted companies including Fish and Game, David Leddy's Fire Exit and Ontroerend Goed, won the Spirit of the Fringe award for the quality of its programme but, according to the article, the figures didn't add up.

The story highlights the challenge of putting on high-quality art in the high-pressure environment of the festival. It's not impossible, but it's not easy.
