St Lou Fringe says

At FIVE-FIFTHS, a single classic story is tackled by an assembly of St Louis’ finest independent artists. A featured performance tells the story in five acts, each performed by a different discipline of performing art. Previous shows have featured puppetry, dance, theatre, taiko drummers, burlesque, bluegrass music, spoken word - all are fair game in this carefully curated selection of favorites and newcomers.

A pop-up gallery digs deeper into the theme with vibrant paintings, photography, and sculptures. Previous featured artwork has included paintings, photography, an original neon sculpture, and designer jewelry. The theme extends beyond the visual and aural, with fine tastes designed by a culinary artist, serving VIP guests sensually provocative eats straight from an improvised kitchen in the heart of the activity.

An all-star host, ambient performers, weird games, poi spinners, swing dancers, face painters, makeup artists, specialty cocktails, live painters, DJs, wandering minstrels, photo booths, costume contests, games, and raffles keep the spirit of the story pulsating throughout the event.

In 2016, St Lou Fringe and Sensory Overload will collaborate with Attitudes Nightclub to take St Louis back in time to “The Age of Glam,” an age of swingers and disco, funk and panthers, gold and glitz. The acts are yet to be announced, and will cover cultural, political, and pop influences from the early 70s through the early 80s.
