Great Barrington, MA: This summer, a new generation of theater makers from across the United States will discover a vibrant home as part of the 9th Annual Berkshire Fringe. Dozens of emerging artists and ensembles spanning the disciplines of theater, dance, music, solo performance and rock opera will participate in the action packed three week festival that runs July 15-August 5 at the Daniel Arts Center (Bard College at Simon’s Rock) in Great Barrington.
Nine productions including three world premieres were curated from an open submission process involving 100 applicants from across the United States and around the globe. Works selected for the 2013 festival demonstrated a high level of professionalism and play while resonating with the Fringe’s mission to introduce adventurous programming to the Berkshire cultural community.
