2023 Adelaide Fringe Official Fringe Guide

NIINA MARNI!

Adelaide Fringe recognises Kaurna Yarta Miyurna First Nations people and their ancestral lands and waterways on which Fringe lives, operates and learns. The lands were never ceded and remain as important to the living Kaurna people today. We pay respect to the Kaurna people and their Elders past and present. Fringe events take place across 11 different traditional language, social and Nation groups: Barngarla, Bodaruwitj, Bunganditj, Kaurna, Meru, Narungga, Ngadjuri, Ngarrindjeri, Nhawu, Nukunu and Peramangk.

We value each group and their people's cultural, spiritual, physical and emotional connection with their lands, waterways and community. We acknowledge and embrace the significance and diversity of First Nations people’s contributions to our Fringe and the arts.

We are proud to present the 2023 Adelaide Fringe Program! Come join us at Fringe as thousands of artists from all over the world transform our city and state with amazing shows for all. The magic of our festival wouldn’t be possible without the support from so many organisations and individuals – in particular, the State Government of South Australia, the City of Adelaide and our Principal Partner, BankSA.

We are so grateful for the support. Thank you to the Adelaide Fringe Board, donors, Partners and the artists and venues involved in Fringe. Celebrate the arts with us and get ready to expect the unexpected!

The Fringe is a much-loved festival that is vital to the cultural life of South Australians. Its ecosystem is made up of hundreds of venues, thousands of artists and is supported by an incredible number of South Australian patrons each year. The Fringe not only captures the public’s imagination with its celebration of so many art forms, it also generates business and jobs.

The Malinauskas Labor Government has increased funds to the Fringe to enable it to increase support for artists to attract more tourists, which means even greater economic benefit for our State. I encourage everyone to get behind the 2023 Fringe, support the artists and see lots of shows. It will be over before you know it. Have a wonderful Fringe month!

Welcome to the 2023 Adelaide Fringe!

During 31 magical summer days and nights, the best local, national and international artists will take over the city in Australia’s biggest arts festival. Delight yourself with new experiences while exploring our host of venues throughout the City of Adelaide across pubs and bars, theatres, art galleries and the park lands.

This year’s Fringe is set to be the biggest ever, so catch up with your friends and enjoy everything this world-class festival has to offer.

BankSA is thrilled to be backing Adelaide Fringe for another outstanding festival in 2023 – our 18th as Principal Partner. Our collaboration with the Fringe directly helps to make the arts more accessible and affordable for all South Australians – while also supporting the artists. Every year, Fringe delivers a world-class experience, and we are proud to support the Fringe to deliver significant social, cultural and economic benefits for the South Australian community.

At BankSA, we are passionate about backing South Australia, so join me in experiencing the magic of Adelaide Fringe in 2023!

Fringe is everyone’s favourite time of the year and I am thrilled to say we are back with gusto for 2023. My heartfelt appreciation goes out to all the dedicated artists and venues for working so hard and making this truly remarkable festival come to life once again. A shout out to the incredible staff and volunteers, the Fringe Board and our supporters for their amazing commitment to the Fringe.

Our aim every year is to make Adelaide Fringe the most inclusive festival in the world. We want everyone to feel that the Fringe is for them. I encourage you to get out and experience as much of the Fringe as possible. Go see a new show you have never heard of, explore new venues and soak up the awesome vibe.

There is truly nothing like it! Happy Fringe-ing!

Fleurs de Fringe

The 2023 Adelaide Fringe poster was designed by graphic designer and digital illustrator, Alana Naylor. Her art piece is reflective of the transformation felt throughout the city during Adelaide Fringe, making use of simple shapes inspired by native flora and bold colours.

“It’s an absolute honour and a privilege, and I can only hope this artwork does its job; reflecting and compounding that distinctive “Fringe” feeling, and sparking a sense of energy, joy and wonder in all who cross its path!” - Alana Naylor

Over the past decade we have worked with a collection of brilliant local, national and international talent to promote Fringe and South Australia to the world.

We are celebrating a more diverse program than ever with growing participants, thanks to the support from the South Australian Tourism Commission and their dedication to cementing the state’s position as a vibrant arts and culture destination for domestic and international visitors.

Showcasing and celebrating South Australia’s renowned arts and culture is what the team behind Adelaide Fringe is all about. One decade down, forever to go!

2013

- Paul McDermott

"You hold your future and the information below will help you buy tickets so you ‘Fringe’ to the fullest. Take a risk, roll the dice, throw the darts, listen to the whispers and see something you’ve never dreamt of seeing. And dream."

– Paul McDermott, 2013 Ambassador

2014 - Katie Noonan

“I adore the Adelaide Fringe and the open hearts of those who embrace it, and to those who welcome the Fringe into their lives, I salute you!”

– Katie Noonan, 2014 Ambassador

2015 - Kitty Flanagan

“Word of mouth is what makes Fringe go round. Experience something new and tell people about it!” – Kitty Flanagan, 2015 Ambassador

2016 - Julian Clary

“My motto - in life and at the Fringe - is to take some risks: I’m all for sticking a pin in the program and going to see something random and obscure. You might love it or hate it, but you’ll have something to tell your friends about while you’re prodding the sausages on the barbie.”

– Julian Clary, 2016 Ambassador

2018

- Courtney Act, Joel Creasey

“Immerse yourself in all of the wonderful talent that is at your doorstep. I love show hopping and seeing 3 or 4 things in a day. Come see all the drama, laughs, tears, and joy that this magnificent festival has in store.”

– Courtney Act, 2018 Ambassador

2017 - Hugh Sheridan, Adrienne Truscott, Jimmy C

“Let’s celebrate the gift of the arts. May the child in all of us be inspired to follow their dreams, hear the road of the crowd and feel the excitement of the Adelaide Fringe, arguably the most raw, real and vibrant festival in the world.”

– Hugh Sheridan, 2017 Ambassador

2019

- Hans, Judith Lucy, Gavin Wanganeen

“This festival has played such a huge role in my life, and it’s my absolute pleasure to help share it with all of you.”– Hans, 2019 Ambassador

- Marcia Hines, Fez Faanana, Amanda Palmer

2020

“Could anything be more diverse than the Adelaide Fringe? That’s the great thing about it. It’s so artistic and if anything, Adelaide Fringe allows people to go and do things they wouldn't normally do on stage.”

– Marcia Hines, 2020 Ambassador

2021

- Tilda Cobham Hervey, Electric Fields, Ross Noble, Brooke Boney

“It feels great to say that I have come full circle, having been a teenager performing in the Fringe, to now having been a festival Ambassador!”

– Tilda Cobham-Hervey, 2021 Ambassador

2022 - Reuben Kaye, Diana Nguyen, Nazeem Hussain

“Adelaide Fringe is a festival close to my heart, so to come on as an Ambassador was truly an honour. So much love, effort, sweat and hard work goes into producing this festival and I’ve loved every minute of it!”

– Reuben Kaye, 2022 Ambassador

AM BASSADORS

KWEEN KONG

Kween’s journey began when Thomas caught his first Fringe show after relocating to Adelaide from Sydney in 2013. Since then, Kween toured internationally with the Australian Dance Theatre, won the title of Miss Drag Nation Australia in 2019, and headlined the Top 3 in RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under just last year.

“Adelaide Fringe has been a playground for myself as an artist. I’ve learnt a lot about not only my artistry but the business of my art and how to produce, market and own the masters of my work. I will forever be an ambassador of this incredible festival.”

Performing a whopping 108 shows in the 2022 season, Thomas is no stranger to the Fringe. Catch the powerhouse that is Kween Kong in her feature show ‘B.A.Bz World Tourft. Kween Kong, Spankie Jackzon and Hannah Conda’ (page 16), from 8 March.

SARAH MILLICAN

Comedy heavyweight Sarah Millican is an English comedian, writer and presenter, notorious for her relatable commentaries about life delivered through her own unique lens. Having won Best Newcomer at Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 Sarah knows the impact a Fringe festival can have on an artist's career.

Sarah's natural edginess and openness to talk about all aspects of everyday life has won her millions of fans internationally, evidently from her sell-out touring shows. She manages to push the boundaries while still seeming like your best friend, and it remains the great secret of her success.

“I’m absolutely chuffed to be an Adelaide Fringe Ambassador . Fringe festivals are so important to emerging artists and I can't wait to be in Adelaide to experience the magic of the 63rd Adelaide Fringe!"

Sarah is at the Thebarton Theatre with her show ‘Bobby Dazzler’ (page 63) on February 20 & 26. Both shows are sold out.

PENNY ARCADE

“Becoming an Adelaide Fringe Ambassador is such a great honour for me. Adelaide was the first place in Australia I stepped foot. As the child of Italian migrants in the U.S., it was stunning to find a community of Southern Italians in Adelaide, people who spoke my dialect!

At a time when the world is becoming more narrow and exclusive, the open nature of the Fringe is more important than ever. It is one of the few places in the world where boundaries are being pushed and ideas are being freely presented. The Fringe exposes us to new ideas and that’s a critically important and beautiful thing!”

See Penny this Fringe at The Pyramid in her show ‘Penny Arcade- The Art of Becoming Episode 3: “Superstar Interrupted ’ (page 137) from February 15 – 28.

HELP US BE THE MOST INCLUSIVE FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD

Adelaide Fringe is more than Australia’s biggest arts festival. It’s a place where emerging artists can make their start and where the arts is accessible to all. The Adelaide Fringe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Adelaide Fringe, where every dollar raised is used to help artists present their work, to buy tickets for disadvantaged communities and make Fringe experiences as welcoming and accessible as possible.

Adelaide Fringe is a national drawcard for our State and you can contribute to ensuring its longevity. You can make a one-off or ongoing donation, with funds going to initiatives including: Accessible Arts Fund, The Artist Fund and The Community Fund

ACCESSIBLE ARTS FUND

Our aim is to make Fringe as accessible and inclusive as possible. This funding supports accessibility initiatives including Auslan interpreters and audio description across the program, and increased services at registered Fringe venues.

THE ARTIST FUND

The Artist Fund provides opportunities for emerging artists to create and present their work, by reducing the financial burden to artists in the early stages of their careers.

Of the 170 grants awarded to artists this year, 17% of shows self-identify as having cast and creatives that are First Nations, 39% are culturally and linguistically diverse, and 44% are part of the LGBTQIA+ community.

COMMUNITY THE FUND

Thanks to support from Lutheran Care, Adelaide Fringe will be able to distribute more tickets than ever before to disadvantaged groups who might otherwise not be able to attend Fringe. More than 1000 tickets will be distributed through the Community Fund. You can donate online to help us give out even more tickets.

Supported by

“The generous support and enthusiasm from the Adelaide Fringe team was instrumental in presenting Steven Oliver: Bigger and Blacker in 2022. Without it, we would not have garnered rave reviews, two Adelaide Fringe awards and future bookings. I am very grateful.”

– Michael Griffiths, 2022 Grant Recipient

“Fringe was an excellent place to premier new work and the grant certainly helped to achieve our vision.” – Jamie Bretman, 2022 Grant Recipient

First Nations Events Icon Designed by Elizabeth Close "This icon is intended to be a signal to Adelaide Fringe audiences, that the performance, exhibition or event is by or in collaboration with First Nations Australian Artists. It is a landmark; a digital landmark; underpinned by the ancient practice of using and creating cultural and geographical landmarks. It represents all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and performers, and speaks to the concept of community and connection to place and space. The drips speak to our connection to Country since time immemorial; the paint is still wet on non-Aboriginal occupation of this land. It is informed also by the original concepts that underpin the Aboriginal Flag - representing the people, the sun as giver of life, and the land itself." – Elizabeth Close 11

Chris Marlton is returning to Adelaide Fringe with three of his favourite characters. New York club comic Marlon M’Logne, motivational speaker Rob-rob Anthony and Aussie comedy legend Gareth Mosley; all from the comedian reviewed as having “an amazing talent bringing characters to life and impeccable accents to match.”. 2022 was a HUGE turning point in Chris’ life, after the most embarrassing (but hilarious) thing happened to him in public. All the dackings and wedgies in the world could not prepare him for this moment. Is he still Mr Dry Eyes? This show features the best joke of 2022. ★★★★ The Australian Times ★★★★ Isolated Nation.
