Fringe

The 9th Annual Fringe Festival took place from Saturday, August 13th, 2016 to Sunday, August 28th, 2016. The festival featured 159 unique artists staging 582 performances in a carnival of creativity. In addition to encouraging performer’s unrestrained displays of creativity, the festival also vigorously promoted equal access to the arts. The festival implemented new procedures aimed at increasing access for disabled persons to both venues and performance information. In what is quickly becoming a staple of the festival, the Warm-Up Week was held before official performances were scheduled to being, and featured both the inaugural Art Carnival and Fringe Club promotion events. We look forward to planning an even more abundant array of events to invigorate the public to celebrate with us at the ever-lively and constantly-evolving Taipei Fringe Festival.

2015 8th Taipei Fringe Festival was staged between August 23th and September 13th. Many new venues are situated within Taipei's more residential neighborhoods, surrounded by complex networks of intersecting alleys and lanes. Pass the outdoor vegetable market, circumnavigate several small alleys, climb a small hill, walk to the riverside; Taipei Fringe Festival's scope extends to the city limits!

This year the Curator process has been amended to allow for an even larger range of venue possibilities, and to accommodate even more types of, and better planned, performance activities. On one hand, this will encourage artists to actively participate in and plan activities geared toward invoking greater audience participation. On the other hand, it reflects our efforts to create a more comprehensive service platform for artists which includes marketing lectures, consultant teams, cross-cultural collaborations and opening day activities - all of which not only increase show quality, but also increase ticket sales and production ability.
2014's 7th Annual Taipei Fringe Festival takes it thematic undertones from 007's wacky behavior and intrepid sense of self-confidence with the goal of piquing the interest of the city's residents.From opening day on Saturday, August 30th to the final performances on Sunday, September 14th, let your dazzling light shine for the world to see!

The 2012 Taipei Fringe Festival is also expanding the system of collaborative curating, allowing the Fringe to accommodate an even greater range of performance possibilities as well as to provide a higher level of planned performances.

This will not only allow the Fringe to increase its programming, but will also strengthen marketing and production.

Fringe

A brand new fringe festival in Taipei. Changing your imagination about the arts.

This is a new voice we aspire for this summer. The artists of the 61 creative groups assembled this ti,e are averagely as young as 30 years, who are going to perform in the forms of drama, dance, music, mimes, and even the very "jump-thinking" creative activities like fortune-telling and artistic wedding banquests. This formidable array of young creators will put on 166 show altogether to give us an independent and super cool Taipei Fringe Festival.
