Comedy - Stand Up

Tom Gleeson - Lighten Up

Hard Quiz host Tom Gleeson is returning for FRINGE WORLD 2020 with his new show Lighten Up. The stand up show is expected to be witty and sharp, and recommended to make a great first date or to check out with work friends.

With some coarse language, the show is rated M, goes for one hour and is showing at The Heath Ledger Theatre. Tickets range from $39.00 to $45.00.

At last year's FRINGE WORLD, Gleeson took home the comedy award for his show Joy.

Cabaret

Disney in Drag: Once Upon a Parody

Performed by Perth group the Hairy Godmothers, Disney in Drag comes with a warning that "your childhood memories may never recover." This 18+ show, filled with dark humour, explores modern gender roles through a range of classic Disney characters.

The cast is made up of a diverse range of local performers ranging from WAAPA students to engineers, some with plenty of FRINGE experience and some in their first year.

Disney in Drag is showing at Palace Cinemas in Raine Square, a number of dates are already sold out, so it's not one you want to sleep on. Ticket prices range from $26.00 to $29.00.

Theatre

Flight & Séance

After last year's success with the mixed media show Séance, which is also returning in 2020, the group behind the experience, Darkfield, is introducing Flight.

Flight is set in the economy section of a commercial aeroplane and uses 3D sound in total darkness to create an immersive, multi-sensory experience for participants.

Taking place in a shipping container, Séance uses sensory deprivation through darkness and binaural audio to "blur the bounds of perception and reality."

Both Flight and Séance are located at the Perth Cultural Centre in Northbridge, tickets cost $25.00 and $20.00 respectively.

Circus

A Simple Space

Contemporary circus group Gravity & Other Myths is bringing their award winning and internationally acclaimed show A Simple Space to Perth for FRINGE.

The show has been performed over 600 times in 30 different countries. Driven by live percussion, the team of seven push their physical abilities in an incredible display of what the human body is capable of.

A Simple Space is showing at The West Australian Spiegeltent at The Woodside Pleasure Garden in Northbridge. Ticket prices are between $38.00 and $42.00 for the one hour show.
