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 …

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 – FABIEN CLARK – DON’T WORRY HE’S NOT PERMANENT – 4K

Appearing in the very small Cranny, where someone had accidentally turned off the aircon, in front of a sweaty audience who had seated themselves so as to be in the direct path of the airflow from the fan was Fabien Clark, heroically appearing at this years fringe despite the fact that he now shares his …

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.

Like its stars, this show delivers exactly what it promises in the blurb, and then some – flesh, profanity, hilarity, sex and nudity. Lots and lots of nudity. Led by hilarious MC Memphis Mae, who enlisted the help of the audience to “make her ass famous”, the all-girl troupe took us on a celebration of all things debaucherous and sexy, ranging …
