After 11 nonstop days, 169 live performances and 19 venues, the annual Minnesota Fringe Festival went out with a bang. During the no-cover closing party, held at Dinkytown’s Varsity Theater, more than 1,000 artists and art enthusiasts let loose, dancing to bass-driven tunes under an umbrella of multicolored stage lights.
Now in its 21st year, the Fringe showcases theater, dance and performance art, puppetry, spoken word and storytelling. The mission behind the Fringe madness? That every person has the ability to create live performance art — and should have an opportunity to give it a try.
