The Winnipeg Fringe Festival is an alternative theater festival held every year for twelve days in July in Winnipeg.
This festival is one of the most notable events in the cultural life of Winnipeg in the summer of 2018. The festival shows various genres of theatrical art, such as comedy, drama, experimental productions and also a dance genre.
Fringe is unusual for its basic principles - the participants are not limited in the choice of topics; the participants themselves are chosen not by the decision of the jury, but randomly from among the total number of applicants; and, in addition, the participants receive 100% of the income.
The festival runs from July 18 to July 29. On this weekend Winnipeggers have the last opportunity to visit Fringe this year. The CBC review crew has already shared its opinion on the best participants of the festival, but here are a few more works that you should absolutely see.
