Birds all sing
As if they knew!
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, it is FRINGEWORLD time in Perth. The time of year when for 31 days Perth’s Cultural Centre, Public Gardens and even suburbs are transformed in to cabaret, circus, comedy and performance venues not to mention bars, food vans and did I mention bars? Now in its 5th year, FRINGEWORLD 2015 brings artists from all over the world and the other side of Australia to perform in over 500 shows! There’s something for everyone and you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll enjoy.
This year, FRINGEWORLD expands further than it ever has – to Midland, Fremantle and regional locations. There is a new comedy venue tucked neatly away behind the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia and Central Tafe opens its doors and rooftop to become this year’s Noodle Palace. The Urban Orchard has had a facelift providing latecomers with open air bars and food and of course, the Silent Disco. But the main attraction this year is the aptly named Pleasure Garden. This is where you can come for a breezy read in the outdoor library, enjoy the open atmosphere of outdoor bars, smell the charred wonder of corn on the cob and other yummy foods or even be transported around Perth on an open air rickshaw. (I’m not kidding, they really have those!)
So, if you’re confused about what to see and do during FRINGEWORLD just relax – we have you covered. Check out all of our reviews as they happen and also, hit us up on Facebook – we’d love to answer your Fringe questions.
