And now for something uniquely Asheville — a performing extravaganza on the fourth weekend of January.
The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival provides artists with opportunities to explore the edges of their work, collaborate across genres and bring new and innovative performances to culturally adventurous audiences.
The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival serves patrons of art from Asheville and beyond by facilitating the creation and production of avant garde work that may otherwise not find a venue. In past years the artistic mix has included actors, dancers, singers, videographers, painters and musicians, presenting a varied range of interesting work including cross-genre improvisation, Butoh dance, sketch theatre, modern dance, and multi-media performance art. The spirit of the festival also leaves the city “vulnerable” to random acts of art, such as fire-dancing in the street or mass mobs of poets.
Each venue plays host to a variety of performers, assuring an interesting mix to challenge and delight audiences. The BeBe Theatre is the Fringe headquarters and box office for tickets, but they will have other venues for the amazing artists and performances in the upcoming festival. The four venues are: Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center; Asheville Art Museum; BeBe Theatre and River Arts District.
Your venue for the weekend is the Pinecrest Bed and Breakfast which provides a comfortable bed, fantastic food and puts you close to all of the action. Join us on the Fringe!
