About the theater

The 'Fringe' Theater was established in 2010 in the Old City of Be'er Sheva, and since then the place has been home to independent artists in various cultural fields - theater, dance, music and literature.

The theater unites around it a community of artists who together build original and high-quality work with innovative characteristics of the Israeli cultural world.
