The streets of Perth during FRINGE WORLD are packed with hungry, festival fit audiences, and while most of the Summer Nights action takes place in our performance spaces, we are keen to help you take advantage of the fun festival atmosphere with your very own site-specific performance.
Much like The Last Great Hunt’s award-winning Monroe & Associates (in a caravan outside), SJ Finch’s Grr Nights (in a yurt in our rehearsal room) and Road Theatre’s Mobile Moments 3.0 (a roving portraiture project), we want to hear from artists who plan on taking to the streets with their work, whatever format that takes.
Liberated from four black walls, the boundaries of your performance are as limitless as your imagination. Reconsider your relationship with form and audience, and get down and dirty with Perth’s eccentricities. Immerse your work in our building, street, skyline, or neighbourhood; from our doorstep to the dunes, no idea is too big or too small.
Want a top tip? Don’t forget that the heat of our city on a summer’s day can be unforgiving and should be considered in planning your escapade.
We’re also interested in free events. Keep in mind that free events attract a FRINGE WORLD registration fee. As a guide, this was $150 for the 2016 festival.
For events that can’t or don’t want to fit into a blackbox theatre venue we are willing to offer:
> Generous box office splits
> Technical advice & support
> The same great marketing support and a spot in our pretty printed brochure
> A central hub location complete with dressing room, facilities, box office and full front of house support
> And probably a heap of extra stuff along the way
We can’t wait to hear what you have in store.
We understand that your idea might not fit in any of the spaces listed above so we can’t give you made-to-order tech specs. You tell us what you need and let’s start a conversation. We are at the heart of the Perth Cultural Centre and can act as a great hub or starting off point for an outdoor performance, walking tour or other.
