RIPE [Raw + Intimate Performance Experiments]

The Kathleen Hermesdorf FRESH Festival 2022
January 4th & 11th, 2022

The 2022 FRESH Festival RIPE [Raw + Intimate Performance Experiments] showcase will be two evenings of emerging experimental performance along with facilitated audience feedback. RIPE is an informal, low production showcase that offers emergent artists the opportunity to share works in progress, speak about their process, and participate in artist-audience dialogue. In the words of FRESH founder, Kathleen Hermesdorf, the RIPE Exchange is “made to cultivate, cross-pollinate, invigorate, create access and generate outreach within and out with the dance, music and performance communities.” In 2022, RIPE will be an opportunity to build bridges between the performing arts communities of Mexico and the SF/Bay Area.
