The best time for visitors to come to Perth is during the 31 days of FRINGE WORLD! Summer is in full swing, the weather is divine and there is a smorgasbord of incredible entertainment to check out.
With a program bustling with more than 700 events, it can be tricky for Fringe first timers to know what to see.
Here are top picks of the Festival, including some international acts and a handful of shows with a unique Aussie flavour.
1. Toe tappin’ treats
Mixing a party vibe with a cool concert is the fun, pub-set experience, The Choir Of Man, a cheerful display of harmonies and high energy dance. Making their FRINGE WORLD debut, the multi-talented cast of nine handsome blokes will sing and dance their way into your hearts with their charms. Best served with a cold glass of beer. Cheers!
Still in the mood for great choreography, but with a wild and outrageous twist? Keep the party vibes going and check out the camp sophistication of ensemble Yummy Unleashed, who return to FRINGE WORLD after previous sell-out seasons with a new show blending absurd, astonishing and outrageous drag and burlesque.
2. Dazzling and daring
Catch the death-defying stunt superstars of Fuego Carnal as they make their fiery return to FRINGE WORLD after a scorching 2019 Festival. This is high-octane circus and spectacle with high stakes, featuring fire, razor sharp blades and stunts to watch from between your fingers.
Powerhouse Western Australian female circus performers YUCK Circus are your go-to for a sugary and spicy show that’s a unique mix of high-flying acrobatics and groovy dancing.
Take it up a notch with the racy Railed, a quartet of cheeky cowboys in a western themed circus spectacular that might make you blush. It’s bare chested circus meets bare knuckle bar fights. Think chiseled bodies, cheeky humour, and audacious acrobatics. You can thank us later.
3. Belly full of laughs
Funnyman and Fringe fave Josh Glanc has two new comedy shows at FRINGE WORLD. We are so hashtag blessed. He has won awards and sold out shows so you do not want to miss Josh Glanc: Glance you for having me and Josh Glanc: work in progress (or one hot loose sexy ride).
Australia’s funniest first-nationers who put the “rad” in traditional Mat Ford (glorious cynic) and Dane Simpson (hilarious Dad jokes) grace Fringe with their presence again with Aborigi-LOL: The Return, an hour of gut busting stand-up.
