There is just one weekend left to soak up all of the Adelaide Fringe goodness. Cue tears and tantrums and cries of ‘don’t leave us’. But as sad as we will be to see it go, there are still plenty of amazing events for all ages and budgets to check out…
With more than 500 ticketed Fringe events on offer all over Adelaide and beyond for the long weekend and a wide range of free events, Fringe-goers will be spoilt for choice.
Adelaide Fringe Director and CEO Heather Croall urged everyone to get out, experience the Fringe and soak up the incredible time to be in Adelaide.
“There are still so many fantastic events happening this weekend and it’s the perfect opportunity for those who may not have had a chance to get to the Fringe yet to see some incredible artists. There are also some great free events happening so there will be no excuse not to make the most of the final weekend of this year’s Fringe,” Ms Croall said.
With 37 cabaret shows, 40 children’s shows, 19 circus and physical theatre shows, 151 comedy shows, 11 dance shows, 19 special events, 5 film and digital events, 16 interactive events, 5 magic shows, 54 music shows, 61 theatre shows and 90 visual art and design exhibitions, the final weekend of the Adelaide Fringe truly has something on offer for everyone.
There are hundreds of venues and only four days left to explore them! Between shows, one of the weekend’s highlights will be the ever popular Fringe Street Theatre Festival. Featuring some of the world’s greatest street performers, this year’s Festival promises to amaze, thrill and astound.
Taking place over four days, acts will be performing on the Unfold Fringe in the Mall stage, near Charles Street in Rundle Mall and in Rundle Street. Just some of the acts performing include manoAmano (Argentina), Bendy Em (UK), Byron Bertram (Canada), Alakazam “The Human Knot” (Australia) and Hanger? (Italy), among many others.
The Digital Playground will continue to inspire wonder at the State Library of South Australia, with a smorgasbord of virtual reality experiences and The Cube from Google’s Creative Lab.
The seaside will come alive once again this year for Fringe in Goolwa. The beloved Fringe Caravan will head south on Sunday, March 13, with a ragtag bunch of weird and wonderful acts who promise to amaze with outstanding physical feats. Acts include manoAmano (Argentina), Byron Bertram (Canada), Kamikaze Fireflies (USA) and Bendy Em (UK). From 10.30am – 1.30pm in Jaralde Park, Goolwa Wharf.
The stunning Hybycozo light sculptures will continue to cast their beautiful light throughout Rundle Mall and James Place. Although best viewed when ablaze at night, the gigantic sculptures are also a sight to behold during the day.
These fantastic free events are of course in addition to the plethora of Fringe shows on offer at venues across the CBD and suburbs.
The long weekend will be the perfect opportunity for Fringe-goers to make the most of all that the 2016 Adelaide Fringe has to offer.
