From a press release:
Asheville Fringe Arts Festival returns, Jan. 22-25
Asheville, NC: It’s lucky number 13 for the Asheville Fringe Arts Festival! This true Asheville Oddity has been happening for 13 years, offering local and imported preforming artists the opportunity to create and showcase new, unique work. The Asheville Fringe provides artists with opportunities to explore the artistic edges of their work, collaborate across genres and bring new, innovative performances to culturally adventurous audiences. Every year the festival features a variety of artists including actors, dancers, installation artists and theatre companies, Butoh dance, puppetry, alternative theatre, modern dance, and performance art.
Save the Dates: The dates for the 2015 AFAF are Thursday, January 22 through Sunday, January 25, 2015. Part of the fun of the Asheville Fringe is venturing out to the fabulous arts spaces all over town that host our performances, installations, and several after parties. With so many shows to choose from, it is essential to plan ahead. Most shows will be performed at least twice during the four days of the festival. The full schedule of shows will be on the website and in the Program Guide after January 5. Tickets will be available online starting January 5.
Bold and brave audiences should go to as many shows as possible to experience the full Fringe effect. Audiences will have many choices this year, with early and late shows at most of the venues: The Bebe Theatre, The Forum at Diana Wortham Theatre, The Odditorium and Mothlight in West Asheville, LaZoom bus and the Toy Boat Community Art Space. Most show times are at 7pm & 9pm. Each show runs about an hour, encouraging festival goers to see two shows a night. Committed Fringe fans can purchase an all access Fringe Freak Pass, starting January 1.
