ROCKINGHAM resident Sally Newman took to the streets for her latest theatrical venture, Woven.

The street performance led Fringe World patrons on a walk through Perth to discover the tales and songs of everyday people.

Newman said her show was an interactive, cleverly scripted piece of story telling.

“Hidden in our city streets are stories we often fail to see – the busker, the businessman, the homeless lady, the barista, the stranger on the train or the artist in the park,” she said.

“Lyrical Infusion’s street theatre show brought all these individual adventures together, proving that music, art, hope and kindness can create a woven community.”

Fringe World adjudicators viewed Woven, and Newman was invited to attend the Fringe World Festival Awards night at the Edith Speigle Tent in Northbridge on February 25.

Woven was announced on the awards night as one of the top five finalists for Best Community Event of the festival.
