The 2015 Houston Fringe Festival is a five-day performance feast celebrating the finest in fringe art-making. The festival will take place at multiple locations, including Frenetic Theater, the Barn, and Super Happy Fun Land, all of which are in the heart of Houston’s art-centric East End. The 2015 Houston Fringe Festival will feature original works in theatre, film, dance, music, performance art and visual art through 20 engaging shows.  

This year’s lineup features a strong cast of Fringe veterans alongside visionary newcomers working in variety of disciplines ranging from thought-provoking one-woman shows and mind-bending performance art pieces, to dramatic theater and visionary contemporary dance. Other featured genres include aerial dance, spoken word, experimental music, and improv theater.

Each Fringe show has been curated to ensure a high-quality theatrical experience. Each work is between 15 minutes and 1 hour in length. Shows that are less than 1 hour will be paired with shorter works so that each ticket ensures a full slot of fringey art.
