Lab Programming Update
Following our 2013 Festival, FringeArts will begin to move into our permanent new facility at Race Street and Columbus Boulevard, on the Delaware waterfront. In order to accommodate this major transition, we will reschedule Lab residencies, Scratch Nights (excluding those for May and June 2013) and other artist development programs, which traditionally would have begun in September, 2013. They will now be scheduled to begin in January, 2014, and will continue for a full season, culminating around our 2014 Festival.
If you are an artist who is interested in participating in 2014 Lab programs and services, please continue to check our website for updates, including application materials, deadlines, updated program information and other opportunities. Updates will be posted as they become available.
All of us at FringeArts look forward to resuming Lab programs in earnest in our new, state-of-the-art facility, which will greatly enhance our capacity to serve the processes of artists and deepen their engagement with audiences.

Humans are animal but animals are not human (says Darwin). Drag queens are not biology but biology is assuredly a drag queen (says RuPaul?). So, what happens when a drag queen becomes an animal? Never fear, Jane Goodall is here.

Where is the center of the universe? What would be there? Why are people looking for it?(Are they??) In this fast spinning world, having fast spinning minds, where do we find ourselves and how do we show ourselves fully to the world? This piece is a journey of trying and wanting.
Hinako will be performing with DIA (Sakuma Takurou), JungWoong Kim, Rebecca Lloyd-Jones, Umer Piracha and Ilse Torlin. Sound design by Tom Deis.

What prevents us from knowing one another for who we are beyond stereotypes and preconceived ideas/formulas? What is the difference between race and culture? Native languages are a way into someone's heart, history and real identity. Not just skin color. This piece is an encounter between languages, cultures, people, and between the musical/spoken word form and the dance/theater form.
Emmanuelle will be performing with Camico Stylec, Shaun Walker, Blayer PoinDuJour, Les Rivera (aka El Malito), and Melvin Blaqmel
