Dancing on the Edge

The Fringe Festival isn’t all about theater (though of course there’s plenty of that; see our picks). The summer staple’s dance and movement-theater offerings have just as much potential as the dramas and musicals do.

  1. 1. Anna and the Annadroids: The Robots Dream Tour

    Through August 20 at Dance New Amsterdam

    Columbus, Ohio’s Anna Sullivan and her Anatomical Scenario Movement Theater present a flamboyant, multimedia look at “society’s indulgences and superficialities.”

  2. 2. “Requiem for New Orleans: A Hip Hop Eulogy”

    Through August 20 at the Actors' Playhouse

    The Requiem Mass for the Dead meets a New Orleans jazz funeral in a post-Katrina hip-hop dance-theater work by North Carolina’s Twilight Repertory Company.

  3. 3. La Femme Est Morte

    Through August 26 at Henry Street Settlement

    Provocatively subtitled “Why I Should Not F%!# My Son,” a new adaptation of Phaedra by Shalimar Productions and choreographer Isis Masoud features a fierce boxing match, the paparazzi, and, obviously, lots of sexual tension.
