Yiddish Animal Songs
by Jesse Greenberg / a glassy ruckus

Queens-based musical duo A Glassy Ruckus (Jesse Greenberg and Naeemah Maddox) performs two pieces inspired by Yiddish folk tales about animals and interspecies relationships: “Diary of a Squirrel” (1920) by Sonya Kantor and “Zlateh the Goat” (1966) by Isaac Bashevis Singer.


Leah and The Rabbit
by Mikayla Wilson/American Myth Center

Leah & the Rabbit uses playful puppetry and spirited live storytelling to intertwine the stories of Brer Rabbit and a freed woman named Leah.


Now in its eighteenth year, Asheville Fringe continues to ask artists to explore the edges of their work, to collaborate across genres and to bring new and innovative performances to culturally adventurous audiences. We strongly suggest that you see more than one Fringe show because of the incredible variety of artists and types of work. One show is just not enough to really have the total Fringe Festival experience!
