Torino Fringe is a multidisciplinary performing arts festival involving the entire region of Piedmont, a national and international showcase and reference point for off-theatre. Created in 2013 in the wake of the great European fringe festivals, it has so far involved over 300 Italian and international companies, with a total of over 2.000 performances in 70 indoor venues in Turin and 35 outdoor venues, and over 100.000 spectators.

The Festival has always worked to improve the enjoyment of culture linked to live shows and to improve the quality of art shows in the performing arts scene, developing a new way of doing culture characterised by a mixture of diverse cultural genres and the languages of contemporary creativity.

The artistic direction of the Festival - defines the programme of the Festival using a multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach based on the dialogue between different art forms and the dissemination of live performances. 

To support the distribution of the shows, the Fringe in Rete project was launched in 2019: cultural workers and artistic directors from all over Italy attend the performances and shows of the Festival, meet the artists and are committed to finding agreements with the selected companies to circulate their shows. The network aims at promoting opportunities for professional growth and creating occasions to meet, exchange experiences and learn. The Festival also includes opportunities for debate and discussion for the artists and the audience: the program offers thematic conferences and workshops with experts, as well as professional meetings. 

The twelfth edition of the Festival will take place from 17 May to 2 June 2024. The shows for the twelfth edition will be selected with this call.
