One of the highlights of this year’s Fringe Festival, Jace Clayton’s “Room 21,” was inspired by the Barnes Foundation’s eccentric arrangements of artwork. Even outside of the Barnes, however, surprising juxtapositions seem to be key to the curated performances. Past and present, virtual and physical, masculine and feminine — many of this year’s shows play with those dichotomies in intriguing and fascinating ways. Here are a few of the shows to catch in the 2016 Fringe Festival:
"The Sincerity Project"
Team Sunshine Performance Corp. returns for the second installment of their confessional project, planned to unfold at two-year intervals over the course of 24 years. The inaugural show found the cast revealing plenty about their hopes and fears for the future (along with their bodies, culminating with a naked dance-off through the FringeArt stands), so this will allow audiences their first check-in on those life goals. (Sept. 8-18, various times, $29, Plays & Players Theater, 1714 Delancey Plaza)
