Fusebox Festival, the Austin-based non-profit organization that annually produces a large-scale art and performance festival by the same name, announced this week that it is hiring two new staffers. Now looking towards its 15th festival, the organization has spent years building its reputation in both the local and national performance scenes, and has hosted a number of acts that have explored various issues, including labor, race, and how we interact with performances and performers. In a 2012 interview with Glasstire, Fusebox founder Ron Berry said that he would call the multi-day event a “hybrid arts festival.” He went on to describe what that means:
It collides all different art forms—theater, dance, visual art, film, etc. It’s about this conversation between these different art forms. It’s also about creating a conversation that spans geography. We wanted to reach beyond just Austin to create a more meaningful dialogue with the country/world. The festival programming is roughly one third local, one third national and one third international.
