From Our Editors
FringeArts doesn't just provide a soapbox for some of Philadelphia's most experimental performance companies and artists. It also introduces audiences to challenging and vibrant theatre, art, and music from around the world—all with the intent of creating dialogues that bridge cultural boundaries. The center achieves this through year-round programming but its core program is the annual Fringe Festival. Every September, this two-week celebration takes over the city with a year's worth of work from contemporary performers and visual artists from Philadelphia, New York City, and around the world. With no creative or curatorial restrictions, performers are free to take over traditional theatres or entire parts of the city. Events might include whimsical stage plays, art installations, or roving performances that transform streets and other buildings into stages.
