Adelaide Fringe 2013 – Symphony of Strange – Tuxedo Cat

Gareth Hart’s latest offering, Symphony of Strange, is just that – bizarre, eccentric, and plain weird. Set on the top floor of Tuxedo Cat, this show was alien and incredibly outlandish. Endearing themselves immediately to the audience members by providing chilli chocolate and damp washcloths to combat the 39degree night, the performers led us into …

Adelaide Fringe 2013 – Alice in the Madhouse – The Birdcage

It is upsetting that my favourite show of the 2013 Adelaide Fringe, in my favourite venue of this year’s festival, was discovered so close to the end of the season. First to the venue – The Birdcage is one of the seemingly dozens of pop-up theatres around the state at the moment. Located in the …

Last year, I took my kids to go and see Fairies are Saving The Planet, a prequel by On the Fly Impro featuring, amongst other characters, the gorgeous, naive – and smelly – Windy the Wombat. Given the enormous turnout of children and parents on this occasion, I was disappointed (but not overly surprised given …

Adelaide Fringe 2013 – 3 Acquaintances – The Crown and Anchor

Someone recently said to me that there is so much comedy in the Adelaide Fringe in 2013 that there should be a separate comedy festival – and I am inclined to agree with them. The Adelaide Fringe has three distinct tiers of comedy now – the top national and international comedians who command sell-out shows …

Adelaide Fringe – Macbeth’s Witches – The Garage International at NACC

Every now and again, the Adelaide Fringe provides something so unusual and so strange that it is almost impossible to review. Well, my new polarising bench-mark is Macbeth’s Witches, created and largely performed by the indomitable Shakti, who is joined by members of her VasantaMala Dance Company. The thing about this show, which purports to …
