Houston Fringe Festival

The Houston Fringe Festival is now accepting applications for 2013!

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. Virtually any type of theater, dance, film, and musical performance is encouraged to apply.

All proposed pieces 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 and dance performed in the Houston area. In other words: the weirder, the better.

This year’s festival will vary from past years by changing from a three-weekend format to a five day fringe feast! For the first time the Houston Fringe Festival will also use a lottery process to program a portion of the lineup. All shows presented at Frenetic Theater will be selected by curators and performances at all other Fringe venues will be selected by the lottery.
