Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Blanc de Blanc Encore

Ever wanted to feel like you’re at a party in a giant flute of Champagne? Fill your glass, take your seat and let the bubbles wash over you as the latest iteration of Blanc de Blanc takes the stage in a grand encore. ★★★★ ½

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Passengers

What’s haunting Max? One minute he’s ordering a sandwich in a café, the next he’s hurling a chair through the shop window. Passengers is the story of a man who is in the dark about his own divided self. ★★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: By a Thread

With little more than 30 metres of thick, white rope and the strength of their own bodies, the performers of One Fell Swoop circus deliver an hour of aerial acrobatic perfection. ★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Floral Peroxide

Chronic illness is too often undiscussed in today’s society and disability is even worse, with the prefix ‘dis’ meaning ‘the negative of’, but Floral Peroxide ensures Fringe won’t fall into the trap of conforming to these dissociative norms. ★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: It All Sparks Joy

Dylan Cole interweaves tragedy with hilarity in his monologue as dishevelled, daytime-drinking hoarder Jeremy Parker, whose veneer of cheery enthusiasm starts to crack as his attempt to de-clutter forces him to face the grief he’s buried. ★★★★

Adelaide Fringe

Fringe review: Tartuffe

Scottish literary icon Liz Lochhead gives Moliere’s Tartuffe a richt guid kick up the erse[i], packing the pared-down comedy of manners with plenty of Scots irreverence. ★★★★
