Join us for five days this April as artists and audiences gather from all over the world for unforgettable live performances and art, unfolding at sites across the city.

The festival features all kinds of artists working across a variety of forms including film, theater, dance, visual art, literature, and music. But at the center of it all is the live event. We continue to believe in the possibilities of live performance (and those things that can only happen when we gather and use our imaginations together).

We are especially grateful for all of our artists, community partners, and supporters who have infused this year’s festival with an unsinkable generosity and collaborative spirit.

This year we are working with three guest curators on a series of unique projects: Michael Anthony Garcia, Jeff Khan, and Jeannelle Ramirez.  Scroll down to read more about them.

What is a typical Fusebox show like?

Each show is pretty unique! We present all kinds of artists working across a variety of art forms including film, theater, dance, visual art, literature, and music. In any given festival there is stuff that kids and dogs would like, and there’s programming that’s pretty challenging, and everything in between. We do have a special love for projects that transcend what we think we know about live performance. And sometimes we just want to share a project because it’s beautiful, or hilarious, or stops us in our tracks.

Fusebox respectfully acknowledges that Austin is on the traditional homelands of the Lipan Apache, Comanche, Tonkawa, Coahuiltecan, Jumano, and many other Indigenous peoples both recorded and unrecorded.

As we gather in our theaters, galleries, and venues throughout the festival, we wish to honor and celebrate the Indigenous Peoples that have resided, thrived, and taken care of the land here, now and before us, and pay our respects to elders past and present.
