Patrons’ Picks: Here are all of them

    ALL AMAZING AND WELL DESERVED! Could not get to all of them but saw 4 of the above, yet know the others are amazing by word of mouth! Bravo!
    Thank you all for a W O N D E R F U L fringe experience this year. This year I went in just to be silly and have fun, and that is what happened! Perhaps blood and guts and drama again next year, but this year was for fun!

    One show that wasn’t in the running for Patrons’ Picks because it wasn’t in a venue – Lumineux by Voci Dance. Only 2 performances, Sat. & Sun. night. Outside in a dark meadow, wood nymphs in flowing gowns, with glowsticks in their wings & hair awoke inside a ring of glowing mushrooms. Haunting, otherwordly music permeated the air. The nymphs meandered and cavorted through the trees like luminescent, magical faeries dancing joyously under the full moon. When their dance was done, they returned to their ring of mushrooms and fell gently to sleep. Unique, creative, haunting. The most unique show I saw at Fringe this year.
