FURNACE FRINGE IS A CELEBRATION....
of new and innovative theatrical works, dance performances, musical acts, and visual arts. Our intent is to give artists the chance to showcase their work in a more professional environment and offer workshops to teach basic skills in the areas of design, dance, visual art, playwriting, and acting. We also have a mentorship program set up for students to be a part of so that they may work with someone in their desired area of the arts. Our two main goals are to foster a community of artists who can collaborate in the future through the connections created in the making of and at the festival AND create a scholarship fund for students looking to further their education in the arts. All proceeds from the festival are going into a scholarship we are creating that will be awarded this fall to an undergraduate student.
The festival will happen over a three day period in a variety of spaces all within walking distance of one another. Boston Playwrights' Theatre will feature four One-Act plays chosen from the 70 playwright submissions we received. In BPT, there will also be two dance performances, refer to the Agenda page for more information about the shows and where to buy tickets. The second space, an art gallery where visual artists can display and sell their work and a performance area where musical acts, and small performances can occur throughout the day and evening. In between the dance and theatre shows there will be small workshops in a variety of disciplines that anyone can take part in. Some of these workshops will be working to create a devised piece to perform at Boston Playwrights' Theatre.
