KANAZAWA FRINGE gives a voice to the easily overlooked fringe of society and phenomena. By stepping free from preexisting concepts and formats, it taps the region’s contemporary creative energy and channels it into forms that can be passed down in the region. Artists and creators, invited to this experimental program from Japan and overseas, interactively engage with the issues, people, and places of Kanazawa from their own perspectives. Then, they explore creative expression in performances attuned to the region and the times.
