Tonight! Scratch Night: Neighborhood Fringe Spotlight

Posted August 4th, 2014

Every Monday night in August, we’re offering free previews of the 2014 Fringe Festival–Neighborhood Fringe artists are serving up short excerpts of their work, and we’re serving up free beer. First one is TONIGHT!

This week’s lineup:

Laurencio Ruiz, with whom we spoke last week, offers up Incongruous, puppetry exploring the variations of the human form. Preview below.

Emily Schuman offers a new translation of Fernando Arrabal’s absurdist play Fando y Lis. Hey, we talked to her last week too!

Gunnar Montana returns to the Fringe with RESURRECTION ROOM. He explains the show below, promising, in the friendliest of voices, “demon geishas and hysterical body snatchers.” The vid closes with excerpts from his last work, Hybernate.

Factory Productions featuring Ann Artist will take you Through the Glass Ceiling as they explore the limitations of gender and feminine identity.

And choreographer Joanne McBride’s Broken Road tackles childhood, loyalty, and love.

First Scratch Night is tonight!
