The word “fringe” can refer to the uncommon, unconventional and extreme. And while the 28th annual Vancouver International Fringe Festival may feature performances that fall into those categories, there is still guaranteed to be something that appeals to everyone’s edgy side. After all, there will be 754 performances by 97 groups over 11 days. In total, there are expected to be 30,000 attendees. That’s a lot of uncommon, unconventional and extreme theatre-goers, which goes to show that sometimes the abnormal is the norm.
