Perth based contemporary circus company Kinetica bring their reading of Ingrid Tan's graphic novel "Hold Close" energetically to life. The stage opens to the cool of the forest, as performers take their aerial act positions. Their malleable form convinces you that they indeed are forest dwellers exploring the space.
If you are new to The Fringe, you may have heard the common phrase - "you just don't know what to expect". This was definitely my experience of Amy Macpherson's SOMA. There was immense thought and preparation put into this delicate dance work by the young talented individual who received training at Sonsina Wogayehu of Circus Oz in the field of contortion.

This year's Fringe line up includes the international collaboration between Theatre Moments (Japan) and Godot Art Association (Macau) presenting their dramatization of Kobe Abe's short story "Panic". Kobe Abe's repertoire has nominated him to be a Nobel Prize for Literature candidate and thus adapting his work is by no means an easy task.
The Melbourne City Ballet joins The Fringe with their spectacular piece "Placebo" featuring the works of choreographers Yui Masukawa, Brendan Bradshaw, Alexandra Tylee and Michael Pappalardo. The performance explored the fragility of mind, reflection, power and control through a balance of classical and contemporary ballet.
