Mister E of Imagination: Edgar Allan Poe presented by The Little Company at Morehead State University

That moment when "your life flashes before your eyes." Therein lies the premise of Mister E of Imagination; for at its heart, it is a memory play. You will live inside his brain, exploring significant people and moments of his life through his own stories, until his final breath. It is integral to the staging that the actors play multiple parts, shifting from story to poem to story throughout the play. Intertwining many theatrical conventions within the staging help visualize Poe's struggle with understanding the fine line between reality and imagination yet showcasing the imagination in his body of work."

ICTF 2023 represents a return to ICTF and the Fringe for The Little Company of Morehead State University as they bring another unique show to the international stage.

Still Life A Gallery in Motion Thumbnail REV

Still Life: A Gallery in Motion presented by The Canyon Collective

Still Life: A Gallery in Motion is a devised Physical Theatre/Dance piece brought to you by The Canyon Collective of West Texas A&M University. Experience the melding of observation and creation as great works of art come alive and interact with their viewers and creators. Inspired by classical and contemporary paintings, and supported by a variety of prerecorded and live music, we explore and interpret the human condition present in the paint, the subject, and the artists. Travel through a multimedia world via abstract movement, dance, and song. Open your minds to the art within and around you.

This is the first ICTF/Fringe experience for this group, and we're intrigued by this show and can't wait to see it!

Howard Payne Surely Goodness Thumbnail

Surely Goodness presented by HPU Music and Fine Arts

This original drama with music tells a story of finding hope in a world that can seem meaninglessly cruel. While the message of the play is deeply human, the action revolves around the character of a very special dog named 'Goodness'. Full of humor, mischief, loyalty, loss, and empathy, Goodness shows us that no matter how dark things get, even the slightest sense of God's goodness can lead us back to Him. The play is appropriate for all ages; children and adults will enjoy the live music, the charming puppetry of Goodness, and the talented cast of actors and musicians.

Nick's group of Servant Artists always brings thought-provoking shows to the Fringe.

Hostos What You Will Thumbnail

What You Will presented by Hostos Repertory Company

What happens when the young Viola finds herself shipwrecked and decides to disguise herself as her twin brother Sebastian? What doesn't happen! This contemporary version of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night uses pop culture and urban music to bring one of the Bard's best mixed-gender comedies to life. Feste carries a boom box, Olivia is a fashion model and the Duke is a body builder. Malvolio remains his snotty self, and Toby and Andrew find hilarious new ways to cause trouble. A wonderfully nonthreatening way to introduce audiences to the complexity of classic literature.

Angel Morales from Hostos returns to bring his third troupe to the Fringe with ICTF!
