Review | Fuego Carnal melts down The Ice Cream Factory

Fuego Carnal | Empyrean at Ice Cream Factory | til 17th Feb | ★ ★ ★ ★ ★  Fuego Carnal is an extremely hot circus act. ‘Fuego’ is Spanish for ‘fire’ and ‘carnal’ being universally understood; this sensational collection of fiery performances will have you gasping for breath for a full hour.

Review | Almost Lesbians ticks all the boxes

Review | Almost Lesbians ticks all the boxes

Almost Lesbians | Perth Town Hall | ★ ★ ★ ★ It was freezing cold as we were lead into the venue. The Supper Room, so named for it’s corridor like shape in which you could maybe fit one admittedly very long dinner table, wasn’t what I’d call an ideal venue. I’m still not convinced that anything […]

Review | Showgirl: Deconstructed, a horrifying look behind the curtain

Review | Showgirl: Deconstructed, a horrifying look behind the curtain

Showgirl Interrupted | Ibis Palace | ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ When asked the question of ‘How many microphones can you fit on your person?’, Carletta The Great answers, ‘One more if you’re willing to strip that far’. It’s one part psychedelic photo manipulation, one part ear-splitting audio, and another 10 parts of amazing performance on the […]

Review | Tres Masc? Tres ordinaire

Tres Masc? | Connections Nightclub | til Feb 12th | ★ ★ ★ ½  I wish my gym was as fabulous as the one that Cougar Morrison constructs on the Connections stage. Tres Masc is a drag show which set out to examine masculinity and sexuality, and whilst the view provided is a fairly limited one at […]

Review | John Robertson’s Looking Sharp is a rambunctious thrill ride

John Robertson: Looking Sharp | Four5Nine | til Feb 11th | ★ ★ ★ ★ ★  Arriving at Bar Four5Nine, the space has been turned into a kind of house of horrors. You half expect a dollar store Leatherface to come stumbling through with a chainsaw. I also have missed the memo about wearing all black, and worry […]

Review | Looking for a #pickup?

Review | Looking for a #pickup?

#pickup | Palace Society at 1907 | ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ #pickup is the most hilarious show I’ve seen at Fringe. It’s not what I expected. I was pretty sceptical at first. Maybe it was the hashtag in the title, or the complete overabundance of fifty-something hetro couples who piled into the room with me.  But #pickup […]

Review | Sex bots and hard feminism in Future’s Eve

Future’s Eve | Paper Mountain | ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ Before I went in I was hoping that Future’s Eve was going to be some kind of gay show about time travel. It was not that. Definitely not that. Aitken’s show is shocking and surprising and in a medium I can only describe as ‘physical art’. It’s […]

Review | Little Death Club’s why Fringe is best at midnight

Little Death Club | De Parel Speigeltent | ★ ★ ★ ★ ½  It’s the early hours of the morning that Fringe is at it’s best. Creepy, sexy, or absolutely outrageous, the headlines begin to embody ‘Fringe’ entertainment more and more, and Little Death Club is no exception. With it’s Madame, Bernie Dieter, the show has a […]
