Houston Fringe Festival
September 23-27, 2015
The Houston Fringe Festival is a five-day event in which performers and companies from any city or country present original work at participating venues in Houston’s East End. The annual festival features over 100 companies and individual artists each year, showcasing talent from Houston and beyond. The Houston Fringe supports both emerging and established performing and visual arts.
All proposed works should adhere to the mission of the Houston Fringe: To present daring and conceptually challenging performances that fit outside the mainstream of theater, music, film, dance and art presented in the Houston area. In other words: the weirder, the better.
The full application process for the 2015 Houston Fringe Festival is now closed, however, you can still apply to perform in the Anything Goes performance through June 13. Anything Goes features works 10 minutes or less, from all genres of performance art.

Types of Shows
Fringe shows and art works will be selected by a team of qualified, quirky curators. A selection committee will choose performances based on several criteria, the most important being quality of work (this includes both the content of your production and your ability to demonstrate that you can produce the show that you are proposing) and Fringe factor. The selection committee will also try to ensure a cross-section of shows. Please be aware that participation is highly competitive and we encourage all applicants to keep trying.
Performance and Scheduling
Performers and crew may choose to be involved in more than one production. They will be responsible for ensuring that no scheduling conflicts prevent or interfere with any performances. The Fringe will not adjust any scheduling to accommodate performers appearing in more than one production.
