FRINGE 2017 – Trainspotting Live – 4K

Trainspotting_1200x720_orange

I’ve always had a mixed relationship with Trainspotting. Having seen the movie several times, I often waver between thinking that the film is either: a) a cult classic and searingly honest view into the life of addiction, and b) seeing it simply as a bunch of selfish people destroying their lives and the lives of …

FRINGE 2017 – Wicked Wizards from the East – 3.5K

scaled_16753950_10209070093134911_1316438132_n

All of the Wicked Wizards from the East are bucking against stereotypes: all of the magicians claim that despite being expected to become doctors, accountant, and lawyers, they decided to become performers, much to their parents’ chagrin. The magicians stick to this theme throughout their performance, which includes a lot of genuinely mind-boggling slight-of-hand magic …

FRINGE 2017 – The Paris Underground Cabaret – 3K

scaled_Paris-online

The Paris Underground Cabaret sticks to its theme – parisian music, an emcee with a thick french accent, and costumes that consist of striped tops, red berets, and monochrome everything. There are acts in the catacombs of the City of Light, and war-time lovers dance forlornly. The problem with being a cabaret act at the …

FRINGE 2017 – Adventure Rooms: Gaol Break – 4K

scaled_Adventure_Rooms_Fringe_Picture

This is the second escape room that I’ve done at this year’s Fringe, so it’s hard to say much about Gaol Break without giving too much away or repeating myself from the previous session I did at Adelaide’s other escape room venue, Escape Hunt.

You’re introduced to a range of characters, each bringing their own comedic, sultry elements to the party.
