The next featured venue for the Tucson Fringe Festival is Studio ONE. Their Facebook Page is titled “Studio ONE A Space for Art and Activism. They view themselves as a space for contemporary visual, video, and performance art and theatre. As their title on Facebook suggests, they seek to highlight social justice issues. They have participated in several art showings for immigration and transgender issues, just to name a few. It is a small, intimate venue giving the artists the opportunity to connect with audiences. Here’s what some people have said about the space.
“Studio ONE is an eclectic space that is able to transform into anything you can envision. I enjoy how adaptable the space is and how flexible the owner is. The location is also extremely convenient. I definitely recommend renting this studio for any art exhibitions or small events!” “Studio ONE showcases some wonderful artists and hosts as a venue intriguing and enjoyable events. Downtown Tucson and the community are blessed by its presence.”
This is Studio ONE’s first year working with the festival and they are helping us with another first. The loading dock next to Studio ONE will house the Fringe Lounge, something new for this year’s festival. Fringe Lounge will be the spot for artists and audiences to stop for a rest and to hang out between shows. Fringe Lounge will also act as the customer service area for the festival where anyone can offer feedback, resolve issues, or purchase tickets in advance. The loading dock is part of Studio ONE, but we are treating it as a separate venue. There are no performances in the Fringe Lounge.
