Denver Fringe Festival
[Denver, CO] “What is Fringe?” you ask.
Denver Fringe Festival tell you.
“It’s unjuried, uncensored, unconventional. It is unexpected, unparalleled and unlike anything you have experienced before. It’s diverse artistic voices in all forms of performing arts, and it’s accessible to everyone.”
Twelve venues host fifty-five original shows by local and national performers. There will be comedy, improv, drama, cabaret, dance, aerial, immersive and everything in between.
Three Denver Fringe events that have our nighttime attention are:
- “Special Agent Me” – Rob Kerkovich spent seven years portraying the “funny lab guy” on the CBS detective series “NCIS: New Orleans.” Now he tries to solve the most difficult mystery of his career: what the hell has happened to him since?
- “Shoes” – Interdisciplinary dance artist, Kristen Helen Poppe, explores defining yourself when you feel undefinable. Mixing spoken word and dance this show queers the boundaries of the boxes society places us in, in terms of our gender, our careers, and even how we dance.
- “Mississippi Boys” – Denver comedian Liv Carter takes us down a multimedia rabbit hole exploring God, Dad, and American Jesus. The solo show dives into the complicated relationship between gender, religion, and cultural pressure.
Organizers add, “At the Denver Fringe Festival, we believe that the power of performance art can’t be overstated, that it’s a key component to inspiring thought-provoking conversations and building thriving communities.”
More of this in America, please.
Denver Fringe Festival takes place Jun 8 – 11, 2023.
