Going Long

Scoping Out the Long Fringe of FronteraFest 2000


The debut of the Long Fringe at FronteraFest 2000 gave area artists their first shot at producing performance works for the fest longer than the 25 minutes imposed by the long-running Short Fringe. This past week, the Chronicle Arts team hit the fest to see how local artists were expanding their visions in response to this newfound freedom. Our writers review nine of the shows which opened last week and will continue this week. Additional reviews will appear in the Chronicle's next issue. For more FronteraFest info, call 479-PLAY.
