FringeArts commissions, develops, and presents a range of high-quality contemporary performing and visual arts in Philadelphia. Works are staged during the annual Fringe Festival, and, since 2013, in a full-year schedule of performances by local, national, and international artists. FringeArts' Center-supported works include Elevator Repair Service's world premiere production of The Select: The Sun Also Rises; the US premiere of Food Court by Australia's Back to Back Theatre; and a reimagined production of choreographer Lucinda Childs' 1983 work Available Light. In 2016, FringeArts received Center support to bring South African playwright Brett Bailey to Philadelphia for a three-week residency and a presentation of his adaptation of Verdi's opera Macbeth, set in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
