Critter walks The Warrior’s Path. Critter is not afraid to stand his ground. And Critter carries more knives than you can even count, tough guy. If you think you got what it takes, pop KNIFESLINGIN’! into your VCR, strap up your switchblades, and pay attention. It just might save your life.

Artist Bio: Motz (rhymes w/ boats) created Paper Soul in 2013 for the MN Fringe, focusing on experimenting with the expectations and misconceptions of solo performance. In the before times, he toured Knifeslingin'! to New York, New Orleans, Cincinnati, and Central Michigan University. He created and digitally performed BRIG: A Ghost Story for Film, which won Best 2021 Solo Horror from The Young-Howze Theatre Journal. By day Motz can be found watching people's pets around the Twin Cities, by night he's probably a private eye...or at least drinking like one.

Tucson Fringe Festival

The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored performing arts festival. Since 2011, 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 only 20%, and sometimes 0%, of the artist’s earnings. Tucson Fringe also provides the Tucson arts community with avant-garde, non-traditional performing arts at low-cost ticket prices.

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, such as people of color, the LGBT+ community, women, and other marginalized genders, are championed in our community.

The festival takes place in January every year across multiple venues in downtown Tucson. On average, every year the festival has 20+ shows with between 50-60 performances during the festival weekend.
