All My Dandelion Wishes
by Lydia Tewksbury

All My Dandelion Wishes will explore the clash between the magic of childhood and the climate crisis. Through movement arts, larger than life props, and spoken word, this show will delve into how we as a society talk to children about the state of the world.

Merlin Speaks with Kids
by Montaine Jonas

Merlin, the wise wiseass wisecracking wizard, has been visiting kids aged 1-17 in the Pediatrics Department at Mission Hospital since summer 2022. This piece is based directly on the magical interactions that have taken place in their hospital rooms.


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!
