There are edgy satires, salon-style spoken word performances, site-specific dance shows, true tales told through shadow puppets, and even a conceptual artist who will wash your dirty dishes in Philadelphia’s 19th annual Fringe Festival — and then, of course, there’s the sex, nudity and midnight haunted houses.

Here are five adults-only Fringe Festival performances you should definitely not bring your kids (or parents) to see, in date order:

1. "Rude Beach"

Sept. 3 and 4, 8 p.m.

The Iron Factory

118 Fountain St.

$10-$15

Dancers and choreographers Shannon + Katrina are stripping down for “Rude Beach,” which they describe as “equal parts adventure and love song” in a “lovely and loveable dance” inspired by childhood memories of playing on the sand. The show is a collaboration between Shannon Renninger, Katrina Atkin and five other dancers.

2. "Slaughter/ette"

Sept. 3, 4 and 5, 7:30 p.m.

Mascher Space Cooperative

155 Cecil B. Moore Ave.

Free

This dark comedy was inspired by the way woman are portrayed in reality TV – which is a pretty dark world in itself. A spin on “The Bachelor,” “Slaughter/ette” gives the manufactured drama between walking stereotypes a gruesome twist by setting it in a slaughterhouse. The free performance is by Butter & Serve, made up of four graduates of the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training: Alicia Crosby, Vanita Kalra, Riva Rubenoff and Sara Vanasse.

 

3. "Spookfish"

Sept. 4 to 13

Headlong Studios

1170 S. Broad St.

$10-$15

There’s nothing neighborly about this Neighborhood Fringe show centered on slasher flicks, fireworks accidents and high school horrors, set in a haunted dilapidated warehouse. Local playwright Haygen Brice Walker and director Jessica Schwartz promise “Spookfish” is super creepy — and bloody —until the very end. And just in case you don’t believe them, they make you sign a waiver before you can watch it.

 

4. "Still Standing You"

Sept. 9, 10 and 11, 7 p.m.

Painted Bride

230 Vine St

$15-$29

This unflinching piece of physical theater is part of the Curated lineup: 12 shows from both around the world and right here in Philly handpicked by FringeArts for the festival. Created and performed by Pieter Ampe, from Belgium, and Guilherme Garrido, from Portugal, both part of the CAMPO art center in Belgium, “Still Standing You” is described as an intimate, surprising look at the friendship between two men — with full frontal nudity.  

 

5. ​Puppetdelphia Fringe Slam

Sept. 11, 10:30 p.m.

Plays and Players Theatre

1714 Delancey Place

$10

Remember the funny shock of the puppets going from a romantic kiss to full-on sex in “Team America”? (And let’s not even talk about that scene in the uncut, not-for-theaters version). Relive the magic with the Puppetdelphia Fringe Slam from Leila and Pantea Productions. Both puppets and human will get “risky and frisky” in this variety show featuring short acts, music and more.
