A dynamic duo performs this montage of aural frolic exploring the range of human sound with joy, playfulness, and passion. It’s a mashup of original compositions by the performers with poetry by Dadaist-inspired artists such as Jaap Blonk (1953 -) and Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948), resulting in a curiously primitive, engaging work of theatre. Previous audience responses include the words vivid, unique, refreshing, profound, funny, and statements such as, “I was reminded to listen in a different way.” and, “I am grateful to have been introduced to this art form as an audience member in this particular production. Brava!”

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.
