The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Following international fringe tenets, the festival provides artists with low-risk, low-cost opportunities to perform by using economies of scale to reduce venue rental costs and by taking 0% of the artist’s earnings. Additionally, the festival also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at very low ticket prices. Finally, the festival does not curate or select the performances, maintaining an environment in which everyone and anyone can perform. This ensures that underrepresented artistic voices are championed in our community.
Ariel Pinkerton started experiencing surreal states of mind long before she started doing drugs, and then continued the tradition with their aid. From fantastical game play as a child to mushroom enhanced sky watching at 13, from fighting predators trying to take advantage of her altered state to visiting Narnia on LSD...get ready to take this strange trip with a master storyteller who came out of the wardrobe stronger, wiser, and with plenty of tales to tell.
Ariel Pinkerton has been storytelling for the Minnesota Fringe, Tucson Fringe and anywhere she can open her mouth since 2011. It's a good reason to have had such a crazy life. To quote the immortal Carrie Fisher: "If my life wasn't funny, it would just be true and that is unacceptable."
