What is Hollywood Fringe?
The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual, open-access, community-derived event celebrating freedom of expression and collaboration in the performing arts community. Each June during the Hollywood Fringe, the arts infiltrate the Hollywood neighborhood: fully equipped theaters, parks, clubs, churches, restaurants and other unexpected places host hundreds of productions by local, national, and international arts companies and independent performers.
Participation in the Hollywood Fringe is completely open and uncensored. This free-for-all approach underlines the festival’s mission to be a platform for artists without the barrier of a curative body. By opening the gates to anyone with a vision, the festival is able to exhibit the most diverse and cutting-edge points-of-view the world has to offer. Additionally, by creating an environment where artists must self-produce their work, the Fringe motivates its participants to cultivate a spirit of entrepreneurialism in the arts.
The ‘Already Well’ Performers’ Workshop- We all develop sophisticated defense mechanisms in an effort to feel ‘Safe, Valuable, and Connected’. These mechanisms, (anger, shyness, self-criticism, etc.) can get in the way of our ability to give our best performance. Dr. Denee Jordan, a Clinical Psychologist and veteran performer teaches how to recognize and make peace with these parts of ourselves(our‘characters’).
On my thirty third birthday, I revisit my "comical" life events. Surviving three wars in the Middle East, losing my virginity in a brothel, courtesy of uncle Fady! Finally moving to Los Angeles where I perpetually try to balance sex, Catholic guilt, family and auditions, basically my own internal wars.
