In the riot of offerings that is the International Fringe Festival, it’s hard to pick and choose – and hard to generalize. Many of this year’s pieces were identified as crossing several disciplines: drama, dance, performance art, music, puppetry, humor. Of the almost dozen dance performances presented, this sampling of four included two memories and two dreams. They weren’t particularly complex or subtle works, but each was well danced and effective in its single-minded way, and short enough to not outstay the idea’s welcome.
