|About||FringeArts explores the boundaries of art by presenting the newest, most cutting edge art from Philadelphia and around the world. www.FringeArts.com|
FringeArts commissions, develops, and presents a range of high-quality contemporary performance, to:
Support the artists (local, national & international) who create this work;
Challenge, stimulate, entertain, and educate the diverse audiences who see that work;
Provide opportunities for—and investment in—Philadelphia-based artists in such a way as to lead to the continued growth and health of the local and regional performing arts community;
Engage fully in the global dialogue and global community surrounding this kind of work.
FringeArts is Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance, presenting progressive, world-class art that stretches the imagination and boldly defies expectation. As the city’s lead experimenter in the arts, FringeArts exposes audiences to unpredictable dance, theater and music performances by accomplished and emerging innovators who are pushing the boundaries of art-making and redefining the artistic landscape worldwide.
Year-round programming is presented at FringeArts’ state-of-the-art center on the Delaware River Waterfront—a renovated historic building that also houses a restaurant, La Peg, and beer garden. Each September, the organization presents the annual Fringe Festival, a 17-day celebration that fills the city’s neighborhoods with more than 1,000 curated and independently produced contemporary performances.
