 FRINGE POP: Short Film &
10-minute Play Series
October 6 to 9, 2016

What is Public? What is Private?
Do we even know the difference anymore?
10-minute plays, projections, and short film
used to explore these questions.

WASHINGTON – Capital Fringe is launching a new yearly series: Fringe POP to explore ways of blending projections, theatre and film. In its inaugural event,  Fringe POP uses unique projection as scenic backdrops for each 10-minute play. This year’s focus is on how we experience public vs. private space? With a world of knowledge and connectivity in everyone’s pocket, does privacy even exist? What happens when what we perceive as private is also perceived as public? Short films are paired thematically with 10-minute plays to create two distinctive presentations: PUBLIC and PRIVATE.
