View Guides

Markets, restaurants, breweries, bars, history – you’ll find it all in Fremantle. Known for its maritime history, the port city is also home to the Fremantle Prison, which housed convicts from the 1850s to 1991, and the Round House, an 1831 building which also briefly served as a jail. If you’re chasing a good feed, the cappuccino strip is home to numerous Italian restaurants, Mexican joints, and pubs, while the port hosts a brewery and multiple fish & chip shops. If you’re after some local handmade gifts & crafts, a trip to the Fremantle Markets is always great value.

Description

Harness your imagination! Fear meets truth, and social isolation confronts you with the darker side of mythical creatures. Don't be fooled by what you see, as something else lurks behind you already. And what you hear is not necessarily what has been told. THE WITCH AND THE GOAT is an allegorical tale of generational change, telling about human destiny and the complexity of escaping the recreation of inherited patterns. But while breaking one cycle we are prone to create another. In reviving metaphorical creatures, the performers engage with the deeper meaning of myths and their morals and bring classic archetypes into the present context. As usual, Existence Theatre will take the audience on an emotional journey that won't be easily forgotten. Presented by: ART IN PROCESS Existence Theatre, the Australian/Austrian artist duo of Elisabeth M Eitelberger and Bello Benischauer, have been challenging audiences for twenty years with their peculiar brand of confrontational and thought-provoking theatre (X-PRESS Mag, 2020). They work with changing ensembles and create poignant, powerful, engaging, critical, non-conventional, poetic and surreal performances. Their performers approach the audience in a unique way by breaking down the fourth wall. Hot: Shows to take Fringe up a notch. Think titillating, heart-racing, cheeky, thrilling, political.

Description

Childhood memories are the trigger for Graham Miller's photographic series Playing the Man. The playful and humorous images are a celebration of football and a nostalgic look at the past. Referencing Scanlens bubble-gum football cards from the 1970s and 80s, as well as press images from the era, Miller recreates himself as boyhood football heroes to explore issues of masculinity, identity, and cultural difference. At a moment when Australian sport and the wider community are debating the values and behaviour we expect of our role models, this exhibition provides an accessible and light-hearted entry into serious issues. An ART ON THE MOVE Touring Exhibition. Image Credit: Graham Miller, 'Playing the Man', Installation view, Turner Galleries, September 2019. Courtesy the artist. Presented by: ART ON THE MOVE ART ON THE MOVE encourages connections and fosters a sense of belonging, creativity and a greater understanding of ourselves and the world through visual art. We do this by touring quality contemporary art with appropriate learning and development opportunities that speak to and develop the unique cultural narratives of communities whatever the cultural practice, age, ability and engagement with culture. Mild: Shows with broad family appeal and entertainment to suit all ages. Big on fun, low on risk.

Description

A solo show about falling hard, spinal injuries and one woman's audacity to bounce back. A graphic retelling of surviving every circus performers' nightmare-a 9 metre fall while performing- the 7 hour life-saving surgery, and lengthy recovery process that followed. This autobiographical journey rides the line between life and death, recovery and rediscovery. Heart, body and identity fractured and being divorced while your spine is broken, is a bit of a grind. But bones can heal stronger...and pushing off rock bottom has never been so fun! Performing in the circus industry for 17 years, Chloe comes to FRINGE WORLD with her solo debut full of emotion, survival, heartache, victory, and a big, hard circus pole which she commands with dexterity and daring. Presented by: Chloe Shadlow Chloe began circus training with Reg Bolton, and later, aerials and partner acrobatics at Circus WA. Specialising in Chinese Pole and Flying Trapeze, Chloe graduated N.I.C.A. with a BA of Circus Arts. Chloe has performed nationally and internationally, corporately and with companies such as Circus Joseph Ashton, Lennon Bros. Circus, POP Circus (Japan), at ‘Hoopla!’ Festival in Sydney, and at previous Perth Fringe festivals. Hot: Shows to take Fringe up a notch. Think titillating, heart-racing, cheeky, thrilling, political.

Description

Ngaalang Moort (Our Family) is a compilation of stunning lullabies created by Noongar families in 2020, when the world was turned on its head and we couldn’t all meet together.

CAN took the program online and directly into people’s homes, where these talented participants joined facilitators Charmaine Councillor and Phil Bartlett online to learn the basics of Noongar language and songwriting. Once everyone had their song written and learnt, they recorded their vocals at home ready for final studio production by Charmaine, Phil and sound engineer / musician, Sean Lillico.

The conditions make this album an even more remarkable achievement by everyone involved!

These 15 songs reflect the personal experiences of the people involved. They are  a celebration of moort (family), koort (heart), woonya (love) and a legacy for all.

Lullabies is produced by CAN in collaboration with Noongar families and is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program and the Australia Council for the Arts.

Incy-Wincy is the embodiment of a story of self- transcendence. Like in the nursery rhyme, a challenge is presented over and over again yet there is a never-ending drive to keep going

Description

Incy-Wincy Spider gets washed out, the sun comes out and the climb up the water spout starts again. Conflict is inevitable in life, and while sometimes it may be impossible to dissolve externally, it is vital to transcend it through inner strength and resilience. It is not about the fight against it but choosing a direction within it and finding ease, to keep going in the face of adversity. Internal evolution is readily available when limits are challenged and we reach beyond our comfort zone, much like a child learning to walk, succeeding by standing up after falling over constantly. Choreographed by Montserrat Heras and performed with live original music by Jesse Vivante. Presented by: Montserrat Heras What is most essential in my practice is truth, evolution, curiosity, determination, connection and artistry. I believe that artistic development is an infinite journey, in which we are constantly seeking out new tools to fulfil self-actualisation and illuminate new perceptions. For these reasons I have pursued professional development as a contemporary dancer at Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company MASA Program in Israel, Broadway Dance Center Professional Semester in NYC and other programs in Melbourne and around the world. As an emerging young Australian dance artist with also Spanish and Mexican nationalities I aim to create a multifaceted experience for the audience expressing the universality of the human experience.

~CUP & STRING:

Released on Universal Music, KMS Records, Large Music, Central Station Records, Slime Recordings, Urban Dubz, M2MR. 

Cup & String was an idea between two mates in 2015 who share 2 decades of friendship. What started as banter has turned into a duo producing a variety of House Music and UK garage. Coming from two very different musical backgrounds, one half of the duo specialises in nu disco, and the other is part of an international renowned drum and bass outfit. With their varied knowledge and expertise, the two have created their own sound and have charted multiple times in top 10s on Traxsource, Beatport and Juno. 

With a string of exciting releases to come the duo will continue to push the boundaries of electronic music with their feet still firmly planted in the underground.

 

~WYN:

An up and coming producer/DJ in the Perth bass music scene, WYN has been playing hard-hitting and genre diverse sets at major venues almost every weekend since the launch of her project in mid-

2016. Nightclubs Ambar, Capitol, Villa, Flyrite and Jack Rabbits Slim’s, as well as Sets on the Beach, Falls Festival and Listen Out, are just a few of the venues that have played host to WYN’s dark melodic mixes and soul shaking subs. A lover of glitchy beats, soulful vibes and unique sound design, WYN has been knuckling down to work on a series of original productions. Her debut single, 'Never Be', and latest release ‘A Meeting’, part of ProtoCode’s Ascension LP, encapsulate the breadth of musical diversity she has been inspired by, and foreshadows some huge actions to come from the young producer.
