Melbourne Fringe Festival

Melbourne’s famous Fringe Festival kicked off this week , celebrating art, music, performance and dance. The Fringe Festival runs from September 13-30, and takes place in various venues across Melbourne. Here are our selections to get the most out of the collection of creative entertainment.

DANCE: The 24 hour dance project

If you’re looking for an occasion to get involved in, check out this performance by Freya McGrath. As the title suggests, this really is an event in which the dancer performs non-stop for 24 hours—unless you take over for her! Head over to Testing Grounds in order to participate in this collective and energetic Fringe Festival event – whether it’s for the entertainment or the exercise!

THEATRE: Night Terrors

If you like a fright, be sure to see this night of horror stories, translated to the stage for your spooky enjoyment. Four tales of terror will be brought to the stage by Caitlin Mathieson, performing stories by horror hall-of-famers such as Edgar Allen Poe, and contemporary writers such as Briony Kidd. A knock out success at previous Fringe Festivals, this is not to be missed.

MUSIC: Yasgur

To step into the memories of an era gone by, join Josephine Marchant as she brings stories of Woodstock to life. Through storytelling and song, this Fringe Festival event will take you through a tour of a few of your favourites, transporting you to Woodstock right in the heart of Melbourne.

ART: Fringe Furniture

See a selection of Melbourne’s finest furniture artisans at Abbotsford convent, featuring the work of designers both new and veteran. In one of the Fringe Festival’s longest running events, you’ll see the cream of the crop in creativity, pushing the boundaries of craftsmanship. Keep an eye out for the inflatable chair and ottoman!
