Supporting WA Artists At Fringe
Discovering and experiencing the talent of emerging WA artists is half the fun of the Festival and supporting them is what FRINGE WORLD is all about.
In a move to help local award-winning artists thrive and shine the spotlight on them, the Festival launched the FRINGE WORLD R&D Program Supported by Lotterywest, which has resulted in six brand new shows premiering at Girls School in 2020.
Body Rights, STORMWATER and Split Lip have had an incredible run this Festival with critics and audiences raving, but if you missed out, make sure you check out The Killdeer: A Musical, LONELY MARS and Desire Lines, starting this week.
This thought-provoking show sees four dancers and a number of objects examined as landscapes, monuments, barriers, curators and as the location of desire.
It comprises of a collection of insights into the failure of communication, the language of intimacy and how much is shared between bodies and their surroundings. Bound to spark hours of conversation after it has ended.
Performed in a staggering eight languages, LONELY MARS tells of a group of pioneering women setting out to colonise the new world: Mars.
This is a prescient, multi-genre work looking at oppression and environmental destruction and the sacrifices we will make to ensure a better world.
The Killdeer: A Musical
Originally written by a diverse team of local talent throughout 2018, and performed in 2019 to critical acclaim, The Killdeer: A Musical finds new life through FRINGE WORLD with an updated track list, revamped staging, and all-new original compositions.
With a blend of musical genres including pop, rock, hip-hop and folk, The Killdeer: A Musical tells a tense and unpredictable coming of age tale.
