Celebration of thought-provoking productions
September 5-22, 2013
Now in its 17th year, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival (formerly known as the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe) will once again transform the city over 18 days of spectacular performances from artists across the globe.
Presented by FringeArts, the 2013 Fringe Festival will feature hundreds of dance, theater, visual arts, music and spoken-word performances in traditional venues, but also on street corners, cars, galleries, cabarets and restaurants. It’s offbeat, daring and avant-garde with lots of artistic cross-pollination.
The heart of the festival is FringeArts’ Presented Fringe performances. Highlights this year include seven international artists, four world premieres, three commissioned visual arts pieces and two re-imagined productions from previous Fringe Festivals/

Influenced by Edinburgh, the granddaddy of all Fringe Festivals, five Philadelphia artists banded together in 1997 to create an outlet for other contemporary and experimental performers to present their works. What began as a five-day event has grown into more than two weeks of high-quality, highly innovative artistic presentations.
