The Paris Fringe festival presents shows from international and local companies working in English. There is a focus on innovative approaches and an emphasis on contemporary themes. Be it theatre, dance or comedy, the festival aims to support work that can't otherwise be found in Paris and to bring exciting art forms to a new audience across a variety of traditional and alternative venues in the city. There are also workshops, talks and events to give space to artists and audiences to interact and exchange.
Over 10 days in May the Paris Fringe will fill the 9th and 10th arrpndissements with theatre, dance, comedy, magic, poetry, song and more.
Our main programme has over 20 different events ranging from full shows to workshopped readings. On top of that we have the Free Fringe - mini shows in strange places that are completely free to the public.
The festival makes use of all types of space. Many shows are at established theatres like Les Feux de la Rampe and Théâtre Gymnase but we also make use of a school, a restaurant, a library, a gallery and other unusual locations.
