Virtual Festival

James Pack/ August 31, 2020/ Events, News/ 0 comments

With the pandemic situation changing each week, we at the Tucson Fringe Festival had planned to not plan or have any kind of festival this coming year. Perhaps we needed a break. As we saw what other festivals were doing and how they were adapting, we decided we needed some kind of event. We’ll have a virtual festival in January instead of in-person performances, but we’re doing things a little different. To make things easier for us and easier for the performers, we are paying the performers for their creative works and offering free performances. We will ask for a suggested donation so that we may continue to lighten the burden on those of us in the entertainment sector. We’re here to help the community and give artists, who may not always find a platform to express themselves, a place to call home. If it’s important to you as a performer, it’s important to us.

Venue Spotlight: BYOV Tucson Circus Academy

Our final venues for the 8th Tucson Fringe Theatre Festival are BYOV, a fringe term meaning “Bring Your Own Venue.” One of many things the Fringe provides for artists are venues and liability insurance, but sometimes artists find their own venues to use or their act requires more stringent (and more expensive) insurance. They pay the costs for their venue, instead of the festival. In most cases, this allows them more freedom with scheduling and use of space. This is the third year the Tucson Fringe Festival has hosted a BYOV performance and we are excited to continue bringing Tucson the finest in Fringe performance.  Our one BYOV this year is The Circus Academy of Tucson! And the group performing in the Tucson Fringe Festival is the “Spider Silk Circus,” the professional performing branch of the Circus Academy. The Circus Academy is a program and space primarily dedicated to teaching circus arts and aerial disciplines to local kids and adults. Their mission
