POP-UP PORTFRINGE


Welcome to POP-UP PORTFRINGE — the annual sell-out PortFringe fundraising event!
PortFringe Pop-Ups take the beyond-holy text of classic works, chop it up into pieces,
and feed it to performance artists to go bananas on. Hog-friggin-wild.

THE NEXT POP-UP PORTFRINGE – March 1 & 2, 2019
HOMER’S ODYSSEY
Applications Now Open!


PortFringe Pop-Up events build awareness and provide financial support for the annual summer PortFringe Festival, and showcase the fringe spirit – removing financial and logistical barriers so artists can experiment and take risks. And audiences reap the benefit. The fun, affordable, and innovative format of pop-up shows appeal to theater lovers and fringe newbies alike.

PortFringe Pop-All participants are chosen by random lottery and each assigned one section of a classic work. Each scene must be performed in under FIVE minutes, in absolutely any fashion. For reference, past years’ Pop-Up scenes have included clowning, ritual, shadow puppets, wrestling matches, Dungeons and Dragons, musings on cheese, drinking games, and folk music (just to name a few)!

Are you an Artist interested in participating in Pop-Up Odyssey? Good news! Applications are open through October 31, 2018.

Stay tuned for more show, artists, and ticket details!
