The Houston Fringe Festival is now accepting applications for 2014! 

This year the Houston Fringe Festival is turning lucky number 7. Take a chance and submit to the Fringe!

The Houston Fringe Festival is a five-day event in which performers and companies from any city or country present original artistic work at participating venues in Houston’s East End. The annual festival features over 100 companies and individual artists each year, showcasing talent from Houston and beyond. The Houston Fringe supports both emerging and established performing and visual arts.

All proposed works should adhere to the mission of the Houston Fringe: To present daring and conceptually challenging performances that fit outside the mainstream of theater, music, film, dance and art presented in the Houston area. In other words: the weirder, the better.

Fringe shows and art works will be selected by a team of qualified yet quirky curators.  For more information, visit www.houstonfringefestival.org.

Join us and get your fringe on!

Performance Application Information

Virtually any type of theater, dance, film, musical, spoken word, burlesque, comedy, storytelling, improvisation and performance art are encouraged to apply. All shows must be between 15 minutes and 1 hour. If your piece is 10 minutes or less, it may be submitted to the ‘Anything Goes’ Evening on September 28.

Shows will be selected by a committee comprised of distinguished Houston arts community leaders based on several criteria, the most important being quality of work (this includes both the content of your production and your ability to demonstrate that you can produce the show that you are proposing) and Fringe factor. The selection committee will also try to ensure a diverse cross-section of shows. 

Works selected will perform a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 3 times over the 5-day festival, depending on the venue. All venues are equipped with basic light and sound equipment.

Performances selected for the 2014 Fringe will pay a venue fee and technician fee to secure their spot. 

For the full application details visit www.houstonfringefestival.org.

Visual Art Application Information

We are seeking visual art from emerging and under-represented artists that conceptually challenges! We encourage both interdisciplinary work that transcends categories as well as work in traditional media.  The Fringe Festival Visual Art Exhibition will take place at the Frenetic Theater, and provides visual artists with the opportunity to display their work to a wider public.

Artists interested in submitting their work for the 2014 Houston Fringe Festival Visual Art Exhibition need to send their contact information, CV, artist's statement, and up to 5 images of recent work (including title and dimensions) they wish to be considered for exhibition to fringeart@freneticore.net  We encourage both interdisciplinary work that transcends categories as well as work in traditional media. Please note, if you would like to submit 4-D work, such as video or performance, please see the main Fringe application. 

All accepted artwork must be delivered in person (we will not accept shipments), and by submitting your application you agree that the Houston Fringe Festival/ Frenetic Theater cannot be held responsible for damage or wear to artwork for the duration of the exhibition, and must be picked up promptly after deinstallation. If work submitted differs significantly from work accepted, we reserve the right to exclude it from the exhibition.
