Fringe Street Theatre Festival and other Family Stuff
Today, Friday 8 March the Fringe Street Theatre Festival comes at you with four huge days and nights of the best street performers in the world.
Catch comic acrobats from Cirque Du Soleil, Les Vitamines, or Japanese dance duo, Gabez or the UK’s comic clowns, The Chipolatas at any of the four outdoor performance spaces across town. Bring the family and make a day of it, or head out into the evening.
Adelaide Fringe Director Greg Clarke said “This year’s Fringe Street Theatre Festival features a hilarious collection of performers from around Australia and across the globe. As always the performances are not ticketed, but if you like what you see give generously, this is what they do for a living”.
Also performing throughout the long weekend are Miss Flames from Israel with her fiery dancing and juggling, The Heavy Metal Magician Nigel Blackstorm from the USA and from Germany physical comedian Dado with his slapstick vaudeville, to name a few.
Outdoor stages will be set up in Rundle Mall and on the corner of East Tce and Rundle Rd in Rymill Park / Mullawirraburka. There will also be a 4th stage at the Waymouth Street Party on Friday the 8 March from 5pm to 10pm.
Mr Clarke added, “There are also stacks of other family friendly ticketed Fringe shows on all over town during the long weekend. From comedy to circus, theatre to music – there’s something for everyone! It’s the perfect time to take the family to see some street theatre, grab a bite to eat at a Fringe venue and then go see a Fringe show.”
The Fringe Street Theatre Festival would not be possible without the support of BankSA, Adelaide City Council and The Rundle Mall Management Authority.
Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood said, “The Street Theatre Festival brings a host of international street performers and roving artists outdoors and on to the streets of Adelaide – you never know what you might find around the next corner.”
“Adelaide City Council is proud to be a program partner in such a fun, family-friendly event. It really does have something for all ages – so make time to head into the city and check it out!” Mr Yarwood said.
