If you’re into independent and creative arts, your time of the year has come. The Melbourne Fringe Festival kicks off on September 16 with over 400 events, performances and exhibitions popping up all over the city.
We’d suggest you book your tickets to these events:
“Enter the world of LUMINOUS, where blacklight body art and circus collide to tell neon-lit stories, create magic and form impossible illusions. Leave logic behind and experience a spectacle where hand-painted performers bring their bodies-as-canvases to life.”
Turn up the glamour at the Opening Night Gala. There’ll be performers from across the festival, dancing and all round good vibes.
Shoot from the Hip Festival
“Shoot From The Hip’ is a thrilling detective story, featuring a femme fatale and a private dick, classic 1940s fashions, a jazz-inspired original soundtrack, all in the licentious speakeasy atmosphere of the appropriately named Jury Room.”
Torte e Mort: Songs of Cake and Death
Enjoy the world premiere season of the darkly humourous, seductive and dangerously witty TORTE E MORT: Songs of Cake and Death.
“Anya Anastasia is accompanied by Bec Matthews on percussion to present an electrifying live performance. We witness Anya’s transformation through exaggerated iconic archetypes in the feminine form, deftly evolving through characters from Marie Antoinette to a feisty she-devil. The show explores decadence, pleasure, hedonism and sardonically unfolding reflections upon potential earthly consequences.”
What does it take to become a practically famous D-List star? Find out as the main character Nick who ‘has legs to make any showgirl jealous, a fabulous headshot and a brand new BA in Music Theatre’ tries to become the next big thing.
