FringeArts is Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance, presenting progressive, world-class art that expands the imagination and boldly defies expectations. Our programming exposes audiences to genre-defying performances and installations by accomplished and emerging innovators who push the boundaries of art-making and redefine the artistic landscape worldwide.

Each September, the organization presents the annual Fringe Festival, a 4-week celebration that fills the city’s neighborhoods with more than 1,000 curated and independently produced performances. Year-round, FringeArts presents an equally compelling line up of performances at its state-of-the-art venue on the Delaware River Waterfront—a renovated historic building that also houses La Peg Restaurant & Bar and Haas Biergarten.  This line up includes Blue Heaven Comedy Festival in February, High Pressure Fire Service—a series of new works by local artists—running March through June, Hand to Hand Circus Festival in the summer, and additional programming for late night and outdoor events in Haas Biergarten throughout the year.

 Founded in 2019, Alter Ego Chamber Opera aims to reimagine the classical music canon with an emphasis on queer and contemporary glosses on timeless works. This adaptation of Handel’s Baroque masterwork marries traditional ornamentation with an ‘80s electronica aesthetic, and in keeping with the travesti (and glam rock) tradition, you can expect some gender-bending. In…
