The Vancouver Fringe is a celebration of 11 days of boundary-pushing theatre from performance artists worldwide.
Reigniting the city’s love of live performance and theatrical adventure, Vancouver Fringe will present 70+ bold, daring and dynamic acts as part of its 2022 Festival this September.
Featuring a full smorgasbord of theatre, comedy, music, dance, spoken word, and more, this year’s Festival promises to be one of the Fringe’s most memorable as it takes over almost every theatre space available in and around Granville Island.
Highlights this year include Vancouver-based artist Chase Padgett with his trademark style of humor, storytelling, and song in Lucky Break – a story about his whirlwind 2021 participating in Fox’s latest unscripted singing show. Local legend Dolores Drake returns to the Festival with her acclaimed one-woman show The Distance Between Newfoundland and Toronto – a sell-out at Vancouver Fringe in 2016. Fringe veteran TJ Dawe will also tease Vancouver audiences with an hour of playful jokes and worldly observations in his latest comedic caper Blueberries are Assholes.
Further highlights include the likes of comedians Ed Hill (Stupid Ed) and DK Reinemar (The DK Effect), pioneering dance company PointeTango (Tango, to the Pointe), drag acts Steven Morton (Drag me to the Opera) and Dean Misdale (Life’s a Drag), and the trailblazing theatre company Monster Theatre with a fierce, feminist retelling of Shakespeare’s most famous play (Juliet: A Revenge Comedy).
Throughout all this, the Phillips Fringe Bar will also be back serving drinks and refreshments from noon until night, where audiences can vote for their top theatre acts to participate in ‘Pick of the Fringe’ – a bonus week of performances featuring an array of returning favourites. This year, ‘Pick of the Fringe’ will take place at Performance Works from 21 – 25 September.
