While most Summer Nights action takes place in our performance spaces, the streets of Perth during FRINGE WORLD are packed with hungry, festival-fit audiences.
Much like The Last Great Hunt’s award-winning Monroe & Associates (in a caravan outside), SJ Finch’s Grr Nights (in a yurt), Road Theatre’s Mobile Moments 3.0 (a roving portraiture project) and Deanna Fleysher’s Butt Kapinski (an interactive performance in a rehearsal room) we want to hear from artists who plan on taking to the streets, rehearsals rooms, caravans or parks with their work, whatever format they may take.
We’re also interested in free events that engage with local communities, from the most intimate to the largest of scales. Keep in mind that free events attract a reduced FRINGE WORLD registration fee of just $175.
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.
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 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 point for an outdoor performance or adventure. For events that can’t or don’t want to fit into a black box 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 program
> A central hub location complete with dressing room, facilities, box office and front of house support
> And probably a heap of extra stuff along the way

“Being a part of The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights program provided an invaluable platform for my small independent company to grow within the Perth theatre community. We reached new audiences, were able to showcase the talents of our team, and thanks to the fact that visiting representatives from other Fringe festivals around Australia and overseas were able to see our show, we’ve been able to lay the groundwork for future touring opportunities.” Liz Newell – Writer & Producer, Alone Outside
