FRINGE WORLD continues to expand its portfolio with a world first event hosted on a cruise ship – making it a star attraction for the 2020 Festival.
As part of the 2020 FRINGE WORLD Festival and Cruise and Maritime Voyages (CMV) inaugural Australasian season, the intimate Vasco da Gama will host the Fringe on the Water program for one night only on Saturday 1 February.
With Fringe performances played at over 150 venues across Perth, Fringe on the Water puts the world’s third largest Fringe firmly on the map. Festival Director Amber Hasler says this will be a unique opportunity to stay overnight in Fremantle onboard a stunning cruise ship.
“Guests can look forward to experiencing the indulgent features of this warm, stylish ship and enjoy Fringe performances including a highlight cabaret act and talented roaming performers,” said Ms Hasler.
A fun and meaningful time for the Perth community, the creative event has been well received by both government and business. Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said that he was pleased that FRINGE WORLD had partnered with CMV Australia to present the wonderfully unique event.
Dean Brazier, Managing Director of Cruise & Maritime Voyages Australia, has welcomed the program on board.
“FRINGE WORLD Festival has become known for its captivating, unique entertainment and arts experiences with a distinctly Western Australian twist, so it was only fitting that we bring a taste of this iconic event to Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ newest ship, Vasco da Gama, when she arrives in Fremantle during her inaugural Australasian season.
“Well-equipped to offer a great choice of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues, guests booked on Vasco da Gama’s in-port festival will enjoy a taste of cruising while being treated to world-class Fringe performances.”
