About Minnesota Fringe

There is one big thing that makes Fringe different from any other event in town: All the shows you'll see at Fringe were selected randomly by lottery.

Yep. That's right. Each year the lineup is crafted by placing numbered ping-pong balls into a bingo cage and drawing them out, one by one. From stage veterans to people who are brand new to theater, Minnesota Fringe is a forum for anyone with a story to tell. We also provide the necessary support to make producing a show as easy as possible, regardless of where you land on the artistic spectrum.

Anyone (yes, anyone) can apply to have a show in the festival. If you'd like to have a show in our next festival, applications will go live in November here on our website. Sign up for our newsletter to receive a reminder as well as information about other theater events happening around town.

The mission of the Minnesota Fringe is to promote creative freedom and diversity of artistic expression by linking adventurous artists with adventurous audiences. Thank you for joining in this adventure!

Showtimes

Shows start and end on time at Fringe. With 850 performances of 167 shows in just 11 days, we have to run a tight schedule to avoid descending into chaos. Performances are no more than 60 minutes long with a half hour between each show.

On weekdays shows begin at 5:30pm, 7pm, 8:30pm and 10pm. On weekends there are additional shows at 1pm, 2:30pm and 4pm.

Late seating: There is NO LATE SEATING at Minnesota Fringe. In addition to keeping our schedule, late seating is a safety issue for artists and audiences.

Safety for artists: Some of our theaters require that patrons walk across parts of the stage to reach the seating area, and many of our production companies’ stage work encompasses entrances and exits from the house.

Safety for audiences: Entering a darkened theater, possibly for the first time, and trying to find open seats puts patrons and volunteers at unnecessary risk.

Fringe Central

Fringe Central, sponsored by Surly Brewing and hosted by Grumpy's Bar & Grill - Downtown, serves as the late-night watering hole for artists, staff, volunteers and audience members alike. Come in after a day full of shows to grab a beer and some bar food. Talk about what you loved and what you didn’t. Meet the artists behind the scenes and actors on the stage. Find out what you should see tomorrow or dream up your own idea for next year. You never know what will happen during Fringe, but dropping by Fringe Central gives you a serious head start.

What to Wear

Shorts and a t-shirt. Seriously. Also, a pair of comfy shoes will serve you well in case you have to wait in line. Pro tip: Most Fringe shows take place indoors in air-conditioned venues, so having a layer to throw on in case you get chilly is also advisable.

Close this

Choosing a Show

With 850 performances of 167 shows, it's scandalous to see just one. But how to choose the perfect lineup?

Search by genre: You can filter for genres when trying to decide what to see.

Talk to people: It only sounds scary. Just look for the folks in lanyards. Lanyards are worn by Fringe artists and there are at least a thousand of them dying to tell you about their show.

Read and write reviews: See what audiences are raving about on our audience review page, then return the favor and let others know what you thought.

Get Involved

Fringe isn't just a festival - it's a community, and it couldn't exist without people like you.

Volunteer: Our 400+ volunteers are near and dear to our hearts and make our festival go, so we shower them with lots of love and complimentary seats! Sign up for a shift now!

Socialize: Join us any night of the festival at our official hangout, Fringe Central sponsored by Surly Brewing and hosted by Grumpy's Bar & Grill - Downtown, for a beer, a burger and maybe even some late-night shenanigans.

For what it's worth...

The dance throughout was absolutely lovely and I was with everyone in those moments. When they went for humor, however, it just felt like they were trying a little too hard. Comedy and dance can come together beautifully if done right, but I'm afraid it wasn't here for this show. Nevertheless, great dance


My first dance show.

by Bailey H. on August 8, 2017

I've never seen a dance show ever - not even outside of fringe. To be honest, I thought I'd be bored because dance really isn't my thing, but I found myself getting choked up watching this. It was so positive, so free. I loved it. Woman in the dark purple dress was my favorite.


Sorry you won't have a chance to see it!

RE/Dance visited the Twin Cities Fringe Festival from Chicago again this year and provided a fun and interesting evening of dance around the themes of love (lost/found/discovered). Since this was their last performance, I'll just say I was glad I took the time to see it and I hope they are back again next year!

Breath of fresh air

by Phillip Germond on August 7, 2017
This user has reviewed 6 shows

The choreography and storytelling was accessible, even to audience members who know little about modern dance. The joy of love radiated through the choreography and left the audience feeling exhilarated and hopeful. The naturalistic feel of the production was not supported by the use of a microphone. I wanted to hear the dancers call out with as much energy as they had danced with, instead of hunching over a microphone and being artificially amplified. My favorite number was the finale.

This piece left my cheeks soar from smiling. The dancers put their souls into their work and resonated love to their audience. At several points I felt the urge to run down and join them! I highly recommend this show! Words can't express how much joy it brought me.

Delightful Dance

by Riley Parham on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 14 shows

This is a great show if you love dance or want to change things up from the rest of Fringe (or if you're a writer seeking random inspiration). The dance is beautiful, and there are some fun moments, but I found it lacking more profound emotional connection.


It's about Love again this year

by Lydia McAnerney on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 5 shows

I'm not much for dance, but this was an exception. While I didn't get all the references to love, there sure was love exuding from the dancers. Some repetitive bits, some unexplained vocalization (I didn't expect that from dancers) but mostly enjoyable. I think the energy from the dancers was contagious. If you only go see one dance piece, this could be it.

Quaint, but lacking weight

by Anne Christians on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 6 shows

At the risk of sounding like I don't understand avant garde dance, this show could have benefited from more structure to the storytelling. It seemed at first that we were being set up to explore vignettes of different kinds of love (pets! cake!) but that quickly crumbled away to the detriment of the performance.
Visually, it was all very lovely and enjoyable to watch, but for a show about love it was lacking a lot of substance.


I'm in Love with It's About Love Again

by Ali Daniels on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 3 shows

The title is so appropriate for this production. The dancers clearly put their whole hearts into this show and the love was palpable. Their smiles were all so contagious and their was humor and wit that I've not seen in past dance shows.

The costumes were gorgeous and added to the dreamy and wistful aesthetic, and the music (especially the last song, which I would describe as infectiously adorable) stayed with me the rest of the night.

I took Modern Dance with Michael Estanich at UWSP and I've seen several pieces that he choreographed, and this was by far my favorite. It has so much personality and gives and gives until you feel like you might burst from their generosity of spirit.

Make sure you go see this before the love is gone!

Uneven

by James Gerlich on August 6, 2017
This user has reviewed 13 shows

There were some beautiful, and inventive, moments in these dance performances, but other sequences that were so repetitive that they became uninteresting. One of the most beautiful dances, choreographed to a an adagio from a Schubert piano sonata, was marred, for some reason, by the addition, half-way through, of a cacophony of noise and loud voices from the performers who weren't dancing. What??? All in all, the choreography seemed like a work in progress, a work in need of tightening.

I love Fringe dance shows because they tend to be short and accessible even to those, like me, who don't know much about dance. This show was delightful from start to finish, and there were lots of laughs. Glad we went.

what a wonderful surprise this was! lovely, heartwarming, visually stunning, technically impressive, never a dull moment. each piece flows from one to the other, sometimes with a funny little interlude sketch or charming cast confessional. there's a moment involving a poem, some chairs, stillness, and the sound of crashing waves that i may rank as one of the few Perfect Theatrical Moments i've ever encountered. plus, that blastedly adorable song at the end will be stuck in your head forever, but with a giant grin plastered all over your face. make room, find time, get to the Southern and see this lovely show from this wonderful touring company before their last show on Monday!

This dance company from Chicago is one not to be missed. Relatable and humorous, I found myself laughing out loud at several moments in this performance. This is a seasoned group that works with text organically in performance. Their ensemble work is technically sound and beautifully designed. Catch them while you can!

A delightful romp

by Emma Dozier on August 5, 2017
This user has reviewed 5 shows

Expectation: Wary of seeing yet another dance show about love (cliche?), especially through the lens of the male gaze (one male choreographer; many female dancers). Reality: An extremely strong ensemle of performers - both technically and in expression and vocalization - that were delightful to watch. I wanted to be their friends! Very natural performers who used the unique Southern space to its full potential! I tested up at the line: "I wish I saw myself the way he sees me." Loved it!

Love, in many forms

by Ben Layne on August 4, 2017
This user has reviewed 1 show

This was my first show of the 2017 Fringe, and I was really pleased with my choice. This dance show looks at love in a variety of forms, via smart musical choices (some of which will stick in your head long after the show is done), thoughtful, and often beautiful choreography, and (maybe most importantly) a good, whimsical sense of humor. I try to catch a few dance shows every Fringe, and this show was a great reminder of why it's such a vital part of the fringe experience. Go see this show. You will be glad you did.

I'd never seen a show like this, and I'm very glad I have now. Lively, surreal, and beautifully staged. The subtle humor throughout elevates the show while the movement flows from one theme to another. The company uses the whole stage and brought a great deal of spacial and emotional depth.
