On Wednesday, the Oregon Fringe Festival kicks off on the campus of Southern Oregon University in Ashland. Now in its ninth year, the five-day festival features an eclectic array of art and performances, from interactive improv to interactive sculptures, rock music to music made with beeping microwaves. The events are free and presented in a hybrid format that mixes live, in-person performances with work that can only be experienced online. Oregon Fringe Festival director Paige Gerhard joins us to talk about the festival’s celebration of “unconventional art and unconventional space.” We also hear from a returning artist, Alex Brehmer, who created an interactive, 10-foot-tall puppet called Mind Controlled Millie.
