Hi-DeF Hi-Desert Fringe Festival at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center
The second annual Hi-DeF Hi-Desert Fringe Festival will take place at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center August 23-25, 2019. Hi-DeF 2019 will feature new works and world premieres from local, national and international artists as well as classes and panel discussions for artists and audiences. Hi-DeF 2019 will also include ‘Short Attention Span Theatre’ education and performance sessions for children and teens. Also new for 2019 – performances must be at least 20 minutes long, but do not have a maximum time limit. Co-Directors Miri Hunter and Ann Van Haney are hi-desert residents and performers active in the local theatre and arts scenes. They created Hi-DeF to provide a forum showcasing world-class innovative, boundary-pushing theatre and performance art in the Morongo Basin. Artist applications will be accepted until June 20, 2019. Prospective performers can complete the application package at www.hidesertfringe.org.
