Shows for Her

Girls School is the perfect spot for a girl’s night out with the mix of spoken word and live electronica of EURYDICE and the brand-new, heart-warming story that will make you laugh and cry in equal measure Eleanor Stankiewicz: Nanna-stasia.

Swoon over the poetic love story between a juggler and tightwire dancer who playfully combine their skills in Hands some Feet and enjoy the brutally funny and joyfully dark clowning around of Elizabeth Davie – Apex Predator at the Ice Cream Factory.

Lou Conran: Maybe Baby finds the humour in tragedy at The Brass Monkey or catch the Australian debut of the dazzling acts in Krīdati, a circus inspired eulogy to the forgotten pillow forts of youth, at The Woodside Pleasure Garden.

Shows for Him

You can’t go wrong with FRINGE WORLD award winner Luke Bolland’s latest laugh-fest The Worst Show at Perth FRINGE WORLD 2020 at the Ice Cream Factory or the rotating line-up of comedy acts, games and prizes of Night of Champions at Yagan Square.

Fringe Central has the charming and hilarious award winner Chris Henry with his latest show FLAIR and the chance to find the funny side of losing your vision at The Cheeky Sparrow with Tom Skelton: 2020 Visions (What if I hadn’t gone blind?).

There is the wild ride of magic and illusion in ‘Lucid Dreams’ by Pierre Ulric over at The Woodside Pleasure Garden or pop over to Yagan Square for some more laughs with Umar Azad’s Halal?.. Is it meat you’re looking for??

Shows for Everyone

Strap in and experience something immersive and multi-sensory in Flight or enjoy a wild night of magic, music, comedy and circus with Idris Stanton – WHAM GLAM CIRCUS MAN at FRINGE Central.

Launch into an out-of-this-world exploration of the cosmos with Captain Spaceship: The Return Of Captain Spaceship at the Ice Cream Factory or pop over to Yagan Square for the odd-ball antics of Perth’s own 4some of Awesome.

Girls School has STYX, which weaves together riotous songs, intimate storytelling and a journey through the neuroscience of memory, while The Woodside Pleasure Garden has a dose of ridiculous and sublime with The Bakers.
