FUSEBOX Festival Continues Through May 6th
Fusebox is literally an exchange or creative interaction. Then eventually, it feels as though every piece, every bit of work comes together in a brilliant and connected way.
The annual contemporary art and performance festival, held every spring at several locations throughout Austin, has also been defined as an idea engine. It’s grown into a major platform designed to welcome participants to take risks, erase boundaries and start conversations. In doing so, it presents a wide variety of events featuring local and visiting artists of multiple disciplines, including theater, dance, performance art, art installations, and, of course, music.
Last year, in an interview with KUT’s Mike Lee for Arts Eclectic, Fusebox founder and artistic director Ron Berry said he had no idea the festival would grow into something so enormous, but thanks to the efforts of many contributors and news of the fest spreading through word-of-mouth, it continues to flourish and expand each year.
Fusebox 2012 was officially launched yesterday, and will continue through Sunday, May 6th. Many of the upcoming musical performances will be featured at the Fusebox Hub, 1100 E. 5th St. (the old Tops Used Furniture building) including:
- Super Creeps, an assembly of local musicians paying tribute to the music of David Bowie, featuring Adam Sultan, El John Selector, Harmoni Kelley, and Andy Nolte, tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m.
- Cinematic experiences and extraordinary sound performances presented by local collaborative Church of the Friendly Ghost, beginning at 9 p.m. Sunday
