Chicago's longest-running, last-standing fringe festival is back in its 21st year, presenting a wild variety of fresh new solo performance, live art, avant-garde theater and experimental music.
The lineup is a fringe fan's dream, with a heady mix of veterans and newbies, individuals and ensembles, performance art and opera.—Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader
...illustrates the necessity of Rhino Fest.... virtually no other outlet exists in the city for nonnarrative, multidisciplinary work in this vein....—John Beer, Time Out
I found some genuine moments of mind-bending poetry, off-kilter wit, and intriguing stage images..... for those who like finding fringe diamonds in the rough, Rhino still provides a place for oddball tales delivered on a shoestring budget, at a price anyone can afford. For true fringe lovers, that's outrageously fortunate.—Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune
One of the remarkable aspects of this festival is its generational breadth. "Fringe" is usually a synonym for "fresh out of college," but the lineup here includes seasoned vets as well as rambunctious youths.—Tony Adler, Chicago Reader
Rhinofest welcomes a select group of Chicago artists, including Claire Ashley, Ania Greiner, Susan Kwon, Joseph Riley and John Sisson, whose work will be exhibited for the duration of the festival. Before, during, or after a show, we invite you to explore the lobby, the halls, the closets of the Prop Thtr space; onstage or off, this year's Rhino promises a unique encounter at every turn. Free and open to the public.
