Kulcha, Kidogo Arthouse and PS Art Space are among the more than 60 venues, mainly around the city centre, which will host an array of musical, theatrical and artistic people from all over the country.

At the PS Art Space there will be a little bit of everything during February, including Film Freo 24, which brings some of the best local filmmakers together in a competition to capture the essence of Fremantle and the Upstart Theatre Company’s immersive production of Romeo and Juliet.

Following on from their day-to-day use, Kulcha will be holding three musical performances. Chief executive Jon Cope said Kulcha was very excited to be a part of this year’s festival.

‘We are definitely very enthusiastic about being included in that calibre of Perth performing arts venues in presenting spectacular shows as part of the festival program,’ he said.

‘Fremantle is a place where arts and culture thrives and the City has many different festivals throughout the year, but we need to be connected to great initiatives like Fringe World and attract audiences beyond the Fremantle borders.

‘As a non-profit multicultural arts organisation, we rely a lot on word-of-mouth marketing and networking and our members to advocate the great work we do to support diversity in the arts, so being part of the Fringe World revolution is a great opportunity for Kulcha.’

Showcasing at Kidogo Arthouse is Songs by the Sea, a night of storytelling from four talented local singer-songwriters.

Artist Billie Rogers said they were looking forward to taking their fringe show to Fremantle.
