Have an adventure in Fringe!

Autonomous limitless experimentation, this is the essense of the Fringe.

The Fringe is a non-juried egalitarian arts festival targeted at new and experimental artists. Every summer historic temples, DaDaoCheng Yacht, coffeehouses and youth hostels alike are filled with alternative performances full of creative energy. As a lover of the performing arts, this is a feast that you can't afford to miss!



This year, the 9th Annual Taipei Fringe Festival will be staged between August 6th and August 28th.159 artists from around the world will stage a total of 582 performances around Taipei. The Fringe will present itself indoors and outdoors, in professional theatres and living spaces, on the earth and over the river, and even in mobile venues in addition to immobile ones. While difficulties remain in appropriating the traditional grassroots approach that the Fringe favors to a metropolis setting, the Fringe strives to build a large viewership and tear down the barries between audience and performer. In additional to the classic forms of dance, drama and music performance, this year we see a dramatic increase in all kinds of cross-discilinary work. In addition to mixed-media, performances will feature experimental elements of technology, installations, and electricity. Nothing is beyond the scope of the Fringe. Free your mind and reset your expectations, we promise you it won't be a disappointing experience!
