Performance poetry and theatre arts in concert with one another

When was the last time you yelled your story!?
Poetry on the Fringe marries performance poetry and theatre arts.

Every other Sunday at 6 p.m., for $7 we’ll drop jaws with a:

  • 20-minute open mic for emerging artists
  • never-before-seen theatrical production
  • NPS-certified poetry slam competition.

We’ve designed the limited open mic to bring diverse voices to our poetry scene and to invite new artists to share. Our open mic, free for all, is safe, inclusive, invitational, supportive: a space to take your first steps as a poet.

The theatrical production samples a kaleidoscope of performers (including, sometimes, our own audiences) from drag queens to actors to musicians to comedians—storytellers of all kind. We invite our youth, our elders, our queers, our students, our teachers, our veterans—our voices of all colors, histories, shapes, sizes, and abilities--to perform with us.

The slam is the only certified venue in Indianapolis where poets can compete for substantial prize money—50 bones—every other week and vie for membership on a team that we hope will compete both regionally and nationally.

We’ve got the talent. We’ve got the cred. We’ve got it all. We just need YOU.

Doors at 6 p.m., show is at 6:30 p.m.
