Common People Dance Project – Rundle Mall

 

We told you to learn the dance – so did you perform in Rundle Mall?

The  Common People Dance Project was performed during the Adelaide Street Theatre Festival last Saturday. And if you missed it… keep your ears and eyes peeled as we hear the music will be loud and clear another time during the Fringe!

Thanks to InDaily for the clip!

The Adelaide Fringe has landed…

 

Landed

We just love what happens to the city during the Adelaide Fringe. More people out and about, being delighted at the huge number of performing and visual arts events – Adelaide really comes into it’s own. And another thing’s for sure, the Fringe doesn’t want you to forget about it for the duration of the festival which is why we’re inviting you to welcome our most recently landed citizens – look up, look around but keep looking – you never know where they are going to pop up next!

The Random Guide to choosing an Adelaide Fringe event…

 

Random Guide

Feeling a little overwhelmed by the 700 DIFFERENT EVENTS on this Adelaide Fringe? Thinking, that although the pics in the Guide and on the website look snazzy, there’s still a lot to choose from? Then we’ve got a few suggestions for you!

Snakes and Ladders – Using the Fringe Guide find an event/ artist you’ve heard of and choose the next one across.

The Name Game – Choose an event which starts with the same letter as your name – Search A – Z

Pick a number – Get a friend to choose a number between 8 – 82 (pages where events appear in the Fringe Guide) and go to an event on that page.

Pick a number (Spin the Bottle Version) – Follow the steps for Pick a number. Once you have arrived on that page, grab a bottle, or the closest thing to it, and spin it. Where the bottle points, that’s where you’re going!

Random words – Type in your name, your friends name, a location e.g. Melbourne into the Keyword Search and see what comes up!

Location, Location – Check out the Adelaide Fringe Google Map to check out what venues are in your area

Tried and True – If all else fails, check out the reviews on Talk Fringe, AdelaideNow, Rip It Up, Fringe Benefits or pick up a copy of The Advertiser or The Fix.
