What is a Fringe Festival?

Does it feel as though the world is turning more quickly and more slowly at the same time? Philadelphia’s arts and cultural community is a crucial commons as we collaboratively imagine a more equitable future. While many things have changed, our belief in the value and vitality of collective gatherings around arts and cultural experiences remains constant. While in a period of uncertainty it’s a natural reflex to cling to familiarity, we believe we have a greater imperative to use this time to ask hard questions and support each other, especially those most vulnerable among us. Coming up with creative solutions to bring work to you is inherently a part of our history and the enduring spirit of Fringe. This year we’ve worked hard with our team and community to integrate new platforms and guidelines that foreground care and safety. We’d like to thank our partners in Philadelphia City Government and the Department of Health for their guidance as we work to keep one another safe, particularly when gathering outdoors. All of our artists–both those in our curated slate and the 106 presentations by independent folks– have demonstrated resilience and adaptability as they engage with audiences in new ways. Artists have crafted a range of experiences from

workshops to virtual performances, durational installations, talks, compendiums of material, screenings and more. Our entire team has done a great deal of research and training to ensure that we’re on-hand to help you interact with performances this Fringe Season. That said, we thank you for your flexibility as we work through any changes we need to make to ensure our various platforms are safe and accessible to all. We are so grateful that you’re joining us this year, even while we’re not able to gather in the ways we normally would. The Fringe Festival wouldn’t be the same without you—our audiences, artists, donors, and community. One upside of moving presentations online is that more people can participate, and so if you have a friend across the country or across the world, and you think FringeArts might make their 2020 a little more exciting, please let them know we’re just a few clicks away. This year tickets are significantly reduced or free. To help us offset these costs, we ask that you consider becoming a FringeArts Member today to support our ongoing work. We also hope that you’ll think about supporting independent artists, many of whom are offering free performances. Together we look forward to making this Fringe Festival as vibrant as ever!

All our solidarity, Nick Stuccio President & Producing Director

Zach Blackwood + Katy Dammers Artistic Producers
