Adelaide Fringe 2012
I thought I would share with you some of my Fringe picks and adventures. Photos are from the Festival fun over the past week or so, in Gluttony.
The Adelaide Fringe have a free Tour of the Unexpected Bus service dropping you to various Fringe locations around the city, and providing a great deal of unexpected entertainment along the way. No two rides will ever be the same! Emma, Mum and I took a round trip, which involved a lot of laughing, dancing and some cringing.
Shows to see? I recommend the hilarious Californian trio Sound and Fury, with 'Doc Faustus' which combines the story out Faust with a whole bunch of Western Cinema references. I laughed non stop for the entire hour. They were fantastic, and I can see how they have taken out the award for people's choice the past three Fringe Festivals in a row. Check out their details here.
The Terrible Infants is one of the most exciting Fringe shows this year. It combines story telling in a quirky way, mixing puppetry, song, dance and incredible physical theatre. Not solely aimed at kids, this show inspired me so much. I can see why even Judy Dench got on board to record a voice over for one of their stories. Check it out!
If you want to see three Fringe shows in one, the Tonight style show Amuse-Bouche from Never Ender Productions is back again this year, with an impressive line up of guest artists talking about their shows. I took a few snaps for them this week, of guests Sound and Fury (US), Christophe Davidson (Canada) and A New Coat of Paint: The Songs of Tom Waits.
