Cincinnati, Ohio via the internet (June 4, 2021) — In the midst of an international virtual tour* (during a global pandemic), award-winning performance artist and actor Brian Feldman will bring the online version of one of his signature projects to the 18th Annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival, as one of more than 40 theatre productions available to audiences as part of this year’s festival.

#txtshow (on the internet) is a crowdsourced, immersive, multiscreen performance featuring a mysterious character named txt (pronounced “text”) who recites a script written anonymously in real-time by a live audience (on the internet). It’s the best show you’ll write all year.

Created and performed by Brian Feldman, this LIVE, interactive performance takes place on Zoom, originating from his home in Washington, Douglass Commonwealth. This production serves as Brian’s Ohio debut.

Please Note: This LIVE show relies on a high level of audience interaction. Audience members must keep their camera and microphone on the entire time they are in the show. The content of the show is based entirely upon what audience members write in anonymity and, as such, may contain mature themes, profane language, sudden loud noises, and potentially triggering content or themes. Recommended for 18+.

*6-countries, 21-cities, 80-shows (as of June 2, 2021)

This project was supported by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

Now in its 18th year, Cincy Fringe (as it’s succinctly known) presents over 200 performances of 40+ theatre productions each May and June, plus art galleries, screenings, concerts, workshops, classes, and nightly parties.

Brian Feldman is an award-winning performance artist and actor. He lives in Washington, Douglass Commonwealth where, as the news website DCist noted, “In a city that has an advocacy group exploring how to ‘make D.C. weird’ – and is still struggling – Brian Feldman is a shining beacon of eccentricity.” His work has been featured on television, radio, in print, and online, earning critical comparisons to the likes of Marina Abramović, David Blaine, John Cage, Christo, Marcel Duchamp, Tehching Hsieh, and Andy Kaufman. Since August 2003, he has presented 400+ performances of 130+ projects at 175+ venues and festivals in cities worldwide via Brian Feldman Projects, one of the world’s premier presenters of experimental time-based art.
