The 2014 Houston Fringe Festival is a 5-day performance feast celebrating the finest in fringe art-making. This year marks the lucky seventh anniversary of the Houston Fringe; the festival runs September 24-28 at Frenetic Theater, the Barn, and Super Happy Fun Land. All venues are located in the heart of Houston’s culturally diverse East End. The 2014 Houston Fringe Festival will feature the best independent theatre, film, dance, music, and visual arts through twenty unique and cutting-edge shows. Performers include recognized talent from across the state of Texas, as well as out-of-state participants from Louisiana, Indiana, and Quebec.
The Fringe line-up features veteran performers alongside visionary newcomers working in variety of disciplines ranging from thought-provoking one-woman shows and comedically-tinged burlesque revues, to insightful dramatic theater and stunning contemporary dance. Other featured genres include circus acts, comedy shows, experimental music, and improv theater. Each Fringe show has been curated to ensure a high-quality theatrical experience. Audiences can expect to be excited, shocked, provoked, delighted, and, most importantly, entertained. Each work is between 15 minutes and 1 hour in length. Shows that are less than 1 hour will be paired with shorter works so that each ticket ensures a full slot of fringey performance art.
