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.
Just for tonight Professor E.B. Cunningham presents his curious collection of confounding cabaretic curiosities. Within this wunderkammer you will find accordion music, macabre magic, metaphysical mystery and faustian formalities. Jonica Patella and Strangely invite you to a “meeting with the unusual.” [KingsRiverLife] Would you care to make a bargain for your soul?
The “elfin and evil” [Backstage] Jonica Patella has been called “...the creepiest thing I’ve seen on stage…” [MadTheatrics] due to her “gripping gaze” [TheEdgarAllanPoeReview]. Strangely has thrice circled the globe with a solo cabaret hailed as a “charismatic and slightly deranged,” [outinperth] “tour de force.” [FringeReview] Our Darkened Room is their first collaboration, combining Patella’s “diminutive, but particularly arresting” [NewYorkTimes] devised theatre with Strangely’s “genre-busting” [TheWest] cabaret for an evening that is sure to be a “meeting with the unusual.” [KingsRiverLife]
