Festival frenzy in Perth!

If you are looking for entertainment options in Perth, you are spoilt for choice as the FRINGE WORLD Festival and the Perth Festival overlaps for a few days in February. The Fringe World Festival started on 26 January and runs until 25 February while the Perth Festival takes place from 9 February until 4 March 2018.

More than 750 events are being hosted at 130 venues all over the Perth metro area during the FRINGE WORLD Festival, one of the most popular annual events in Western Australia. It is the third largest Fringe in the world! FRINGE WORLD 2018 has recorded a bumper first two weeks and there’s still more to come with audiences set to enjoy brilliant entertainment. Highlights to look out for in the final two weeks are Hot Brown Honey and Tina Williams’ album launch Bindi Bindi. Anyman, a theatre work performed by recovering drug addicts from Shalom House, will be premiering and promises to WOW the audiences. There is something for everyone at the Fringe.

Two shows have already opened to captivated audiences for the Perth Festival 2018. Il n’est pas encore minuit had the crowd audibly oohing and aahing and squealing in both ‘I can’t watch’ amazement and ‘wow’ excitement at the acrobats’ incredible feats. There was also plenty of ‘how do they do that’ at the mind blowing music and dance experience Attractor, thanks to the other worldly sounds of Senyawa and the physical dexterity of the Dancenorth performers.

The Western Australian edition of Museum of Water at Fremantle Arts Centre and was officially opened last Saturday. You are invited to enjoy a day of discussions that look at our past, present and future through the prism of water.

The hub of the Perth Festival is at Chevron Gardens, where you can feast on the finest from The Standard, Sauma and Lalla Rookh while you listen to free music on the Gardens stage. Catch the Australian exclusive of Beyond Time at His Majesty’s Theatre, a glorious spectacle of martial arts, dance, thundering taiko drums, music and imagery from Taiwan’s award-winning U-Theatre. Get your visual arts fix at Lisa Reihana’s must-see exhibition from the 2017 Venice Biennale at the John Curtin Gallery. Wind down on Sunday afternoon with some free music in Freo, and enjoy the first in the Oceanic Sessions series, featuring the hypnotic vocals and stirring live show of South Africa’s Bongeziwe Mabandla.

There is so much to do. Don’t miss out on the huge array of entertainment available on your doorstep!
