Technology is a tool that should aid and abet human creativity, not a shortcut to replace or cheapen it. In this show, Tucson-based musician Elizabeth Soflin performs music for solo percussion with electronics, exploring how prerecorded or interactive technology can enhance (not overtake) performance on live acoustic instruments. The show will feature the Arizona premiere of composer Von Hansen’s Breath for marimba and track, as well as electroacoustic works by Ivan Trevino, Cassie Wieland, Emma O’Halloran, Adam Hopper, and Mark Applebaum.

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.
