Adelaide Fringe

Adelaide Fringe MUST SEE Acts – The Final 5 Days

Every year the Fringe seems to go quicker than ever, despite going over more days than ever before.

This year again has been highly successful for my show Deception: More Deceit but my favourite thing about the Fringe is the ability to explore other performances and really experience something new.

With only five days to go it’s tough to decide on what to see, here are the five acts I strongly recommend as must see shows before the Fringe is over!

Magician drinks acid

Magician Drinks Acid

Every now and then a magician wants to push the boundaries of what is considered “magic” and break into the thin line between what is real, and what is magic.

Enter Vietnamese magician Tran Tan Phat and his appearance on “Vietnam’s Got Talent” on Sunday.

The “Russian Roulette” Plot has existed for centuries in magic, and though the performance differs often with different risks, the plot is usually the same:

Magician shows risk associated with danger element
Magician has ‘safe’ elements
Magician nor the audience have no idea which element is which, after a random shuffle

But it’s at this point, where every so often, something happens to make this effect go two different ways.

1) Everything is fine, the magician performs the routine safely.

2) They don’t.

Adelaide Fringe Best Shows 2015

The Must See Acts of the Adelaide Fringe 2015

The Adelaide Fringe returns in 2015 a little under three months. Just let that sink in a little.

As an artist, producer and writer of an award winning show for the past three years at the Adelaide Fringe I like to think I have a pretty good idea of what makes a good show, and what doesn’t. It’s tough to see too many shows when you perform every night – so I make sure the shows I choose are the very best.

Below is a selection of the shows I strongly recommend for the Adelaide Fringe in 2015 as the “Best Acts of the Adelaide Fringe” though the best thing about the Fringe is finding new acts for yourself – there are hundreds of hidden gems out there so go and explore!
