FRINGE WORLD is here again, that wonderful time of summer when Perth comes alive and the city is abuzz with all manner of weird and wonderful entertainment.
But with more than 700 events held at over 150 venues, choosing a show can be a tough proposition.
Thankfully, we’ve taken the hard part out of making a decision and have narrowed it down to a field of five.
These are our must-see acts of FRINGE WORLD 2017 (click the show name for tickets).
Mt Lawley theatre whiz Jeffrey Jay Fowler is back with a witty new offering that poses the question: ‘how does the amount of money I have, change my identity?’ Sit down with two different couples of varying incomes and strap yourself in for a glorious ride into the absurd.
We love this show because Fowler is at the helm, bringing his sharp and provocative charm to The Blue Room stage.
All the splendour and sparkle of Studio 54 comes to The West Australian Spiegeltent along with veteran songstress Marcia Hines in Velvet. The show starts with a young man entering a Studio 54-esque venue, unsure of who he is or what he wants from life, then goes on to find himself after meeting some highly unusual characters.
We love this show because it fuses disco, dance and circus – and Marcia can really shake it!
Quirky Pinjarra-raised performer and Helpmann award winner, iOTA premieres his latest cabaret offering at Studio Underground. A deeply personal work full of poignancy and fun, iOTA in The Average Joe explores identity and sexuality through story and song.
We love this show because it is perfect for anyone who considers themselves a little different.
