2nd Annual Frenetic Fringe Festival

The 2nd Annual Frenetic Fringe Festival is all about timing. “It’s a very concentrated type of festival that requires absolutely no patience,” says co-creator Robert Thoth. If you don’t like what you’re seeing, “wait 15 minutes,” he says. Chances are, one of the 15- to 30-minute theater, dance or film performances will keep you in your seat. Selections include Liz Gilbert’s play Nearing Velocity, in which a car accident leaves a girl paralyzed and in love — with the other vehicle’s passenger. In Beyond the Sphere, Jacqueline Nalett sets the spirit’s journey after death to modern dance; and in the film ThruYou, Israeli musician Kutiman mashes up YouTube videos to explore the world’s obsession with making dope beats. A total of four separate programs will be performed during the festival. Program 1 plays this weekend. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m. Sunday. The festival continues through August 23. Frenetic Theater, 5102 Navigation. For information, call 832-426-4624 or visit www.freneticore.net. $15 to $18.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 7. Continues through Aug. 23, 2009
