See It First At Fringe!

FRINGE WORLD has such a strong reputation that it draws a sold line-up of world and Australian premieres every year!

Be among the first in the world or the country to see these brand-new shows in 2020.

World Premiere

Get your mates together at The Woodside Pleasure Garden for THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS, a loud, raucous, story about ancient mythologies full of heart, soul and music or bring the kids along to PreHysterical for some marvellous circus skills and hilarious slapstick comedy.

Anyone after a laugh can have their funny bone tickled at Fringe Central with the hilarious antics in Cam Venn: Shark Heist or with sell-out stand-up comedian Chris Henry – Flair, who oozes charm wit and energy. Meanwhile, Gingzilla brings the glitz, glam song and sass.

Girls School brings the goods with Body Rights, a new program of short works across two performance spaces from the multi-award-winning team of REST (2019) and three dancers telling the story of a British journalist through evocative movement in (un)written * (un)heard.

Get the pulse racing at the Ice Cream Factory at the dazzling World Premiere of Circuit, which combines incredible interactive technology with world-class acrobats, artists and musicians or get a few cheeky giggles with debut show Bec Charlwood – Dirty Girl.

Head to Yagan Square for some sexy late-night excitement with the seductive and electrifying burlesque show Caged, the sultry, intoxicating, glamorous and gritty Empire Club and the fiery, dazzling circus skills of Primo Loco.

For a total change of pace, you can chill out and cuddle a kitten at Cat Concerts at the Subiaco Arts Centre or take in the physical theatre of Further To Fall at Rhubarb Records Vinyl Café.

Australian Premiere

Acrobats and visual artists merge movement, circus and live art projection in Krīdati at The Woodside Pleasure Garden while over at Yagan Square, sing and toe tap along to the smooth tunes in Shades of Bublé: A Three-Man Tribute to Michael Bublé.

Writer and performer David Colvin brings his one-man roller-coaster Thunderstruck to Australia for the first time alongside Matt Davis: BadFamiliar’s comedy about language, nationality and global/regional customs at Girls School.

Make new friends, have some laughs and hopefully win a prize at How to Win A Pub Quiz at Rubix Bar, which is part stand-up, part actual pub quiz and where the audience is split into teams to compete for prizes.

The Blue Room features the Australian Premiere of Kafka’s Ape, a multi-award-winning solo performance about a primate’s struggle to overcome the confines of captivity. Over at the Belgian Beer Café, Clara: Sex, Love & Classical Music is the story of a feminist icon and ground-breaking classical composer, Clara Schumann.

Sweden’s Sirqus Alfon – I Am Somebody comes to Perth for the very first time at The Rechabite to dazzle with a unique mix of beatboxing, clowning, chaos, comedy and lasers.
