PortlandÂ’s 5th Fertile Ground Festival Begins January 24

Now in its fifth year, the Portland-grown Fertile Ground City-Wide Festival of New Work continues to flourish planted in a town of prolific playwrights, abundant actors, innovative dancers, talented designers and adventuresome producers. With many returning companies as well as new producers, FG13 brings dozens upon dozens of new artistic works from Portland's teeming jungle of artists to light to thrive on stages, nooks and crannies all over Portland for 10 days from Thursday, January 24 to Sunday, February 3, 2013.

Shining out through the winter darkness, Fertile Ground offers an astonishing breadth of creative work for the stage, compressed into 10 of the darkest and wettest days of the Portland calendar. Many major theatre companies, dance companies and more are participating, presenting new work as a world premiere or a piece in development with a myriad of workshop productions of theatre and dance, staged readings, readings and multidisciplinary events at all times of the day. In addition to seasoned producers, dozens of small, local producers, playwrights and choreographers are also choosing to offer their work for this collaborative Portland showcase festival.

Single tickets for all festival events are purchased directly through the producing companies.
All access Festival Passes are only $50 and are available on the Fertile Ground website: www.fertilegroundpdx.org.
