PORTLAND – Maine’s premier fringe festival weirdoes are at it again, offering up a uniquely collaborative take on a literary classic.

The PortFringe Festival has once again unleashed its annual Pop-Up experience on the world with its latest iteration, an adaptation of Dante’s “Inferno.” This filmed collaboration involving a dozen different groups and individual artists is available for streaming at the PortFringe website ( through April 15. Tickets are pay-what-you-can, though it’s worth mentioning that this is PortFringe’s primary fundraiser, so be generous if you can.

Previous installments have included three Shakespeare plays – “Hamlet,” “Macbeth” and “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – and two other classics in “The Odyssey” and “Alice in Wonderland.”
