5-Minute Fringe 2021

5-minute fringe

Reading Theater Project’s 5-Minute Fringe Festival is a platform for performing artists to create something new, to challenge expectations, to experiment and explore new ideas, and to connect with an artistic community.


The 6th Annual 5-Minute Fringe Festival’s theme is “Adaptations” and the Festival will be recorded and shared online in February 2021. 


Performance pieces will include elements of theater, dance, music, poetry, and more.  Performing artists are encouraged to challenge the limitations of virtual performance to find new ways to connect with the audience or to collaborate with fellow artists.  As always, the focus is not on the technology but on the material and the performers. 


Each night of the virtual performance will be followed by a Zoom talkback with the Fringe team and the audience. Fringe will be free to the public and remain online (YouTube and Facebook) following the public performances. 


More details to come.
