The 26th annual Philadelphia Fringe Festival kicks off on September 8 and runs through October 2, 2022.
Without a doubt, the most significant staged arts festival to hit this city and redefine its performance theater aesthetic is Nick Stuccio’s Philadelphia Fringe Festival. And for 2022, the announcement of all that will unfurl for the Philadelphia Fringe Festival 2022 is just out and rolling.
“For over 25 years, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival has elevated our city as a primary nexus for cultural conversation, progressive ideas, and innovative art-making,” wrote President, Founder and Producing Director Stuccio. “We are excited to welcome audience members to enjoy this year’s dynamic programming, and hope that the festival can act as a social space in which conversation can blossom between artists and audiences, artists and artists, and Philadelphia and the world.”
The 26th annual Fringe Festival, taking place September 8 through October 2, 2022, will play host to old friends and longtime favorites… Philadelphia based theater artisans such as Geoff Sobelle, Pig Iron Theatre Company and Lightning Rod Special.
John Jarboe’s Bearded Ladies is back at the axis of the Philly Fringe Festival and Opera Philadelphia’s Festival O22 (more on that later) with Late Night Snacks, an after-hours performance-focused bar at 421 N. 7th Street with special guests to come such as Jess Conda, Cookie Diorio, Eric Jaffe, Anthony Martinez-Briggs and Adrienne Truscott.
Modern classical composer David T. Little and Post Beat poet Anne Waldman will produce a work in tribute to Beat Gen godfather, William S. Burroughs, with The Black Lodge. French choreographer Jérôme Bel host and dance up a storm in his self-titled “auto-bio-choreo-graphy”; and the performance art epic, An Untitled Love by A.I.M from Kyle Abraham and MacArthur and Guggenheim Fellow Annie Dorsen’s humorous Spokaoke will make their premieres to Philadelphia audiences this Autumn’s Fringe.
And for those of you still living in fear, or closest to your Netflix account, the Fest’s Digital Fringe component will crank out an independently produced lineup.
