Performance Art, Unfiltered

Every summer, during the first two weeks of August, Minneapolis hosts a no-holds-barred performance festival in the spirit of the "Fringe" movement. For eleven days, hundreds of shows are held in venues throughout the city, offering some of the most cutting-edge art in the Midwest. What will you see? You can never be sure in advance. The performances are not juried - the participators are chosen by lottery - so the only way to find out is to show up and experience them. The performances are usually an hour or less. It can be a wild ride, but it's never boring.
