See the­atre in a dark al­ley

NOW Magazine - Fringe - - Fringe preview 25 things you can’t miss -

This year’s Fringe of­fers a record 20 site­spe­cific shows, fea­tur­ing works that re­quire a par­tic­u­lar venue to have their full im­pact. If you haven’t caught them be­fore, be sure to see Morro And Jasp: Go Bake Your­self, in which the clowns cre­ate kitchen may­hem (from July 3 at 918 Bathurst).

But you don’t have to wan­der all over town to get the non-black-box ex­pe­ri­ence.

Six Al­leyPlays run in the Visual Fringe lo­ca­tion at the Fringe Club’s south end, most re­peat­ing in a two-hour loop of shows that run from 10 min­utes to an hour.

Look for Shake­speare, M.D., in which you can have your ail­ments cured by a dose of the Bard, or The AV Side Show, com­plete with bearded ladies and con­joined twins. Adam is a phys­i­cal the­atre piece ex­am­in­ing woman’s ex­is­tence in a man’s world.

And if you like to cor­re­spond in the old­fash­ioned way, La Let­tre/The Let­ter is a bilin­gual show in which im­prov artists use the au­di­ence’s let­ters to sug­gest a short play. Sta­tionery will be pro­vided. From July 3 at Hon­est Ed’s (581 Bloor).
