The Fringe Blog: Artist Interviews


"...a dedication to radical art that makes Fringe an indispensable entity in this city."

Capital Fringe has been one of the most supportive places in DC for cutting edge music, art, and theater. Many of their presentations and productions would not be possible anywhere else in the city, and it is a rare venue for open creativity in the US.


"Capital Fringe has been the ideal venue for us as a startup theater company in D.C. "

The Fringe ethos makes for vibrant and exciting programming, but it also makes Fringe itself an organization that serves as an incubator for new works, new companies, independent artists and all those who need an artistic home and are on the outskirts of the city's theatrical establishment.


"Happenstance Theater could not have gotten where we are without the support and opportunities provided by Capital Fringe and the Fringe Festival."

Our company, Happenstance Theater, was launched at the inaugural Capital Fringe Festival in 2006. We performed at the Fringe Festival for five years and this gave us an opportunity to affordably produce our work, build an audience base, get reviewed and document our shows so that we could market them for tour.


"An energy that felt so new and vibrant…and so familiar at the same time."

Don't look back… I am an artist today, one of many that thrive because the Capital Fringe is in our midst!
