CHILDREN’S FIESTA

JAZZ IN THE PARK

Held in Samson Park, this is a much loved event for under 12s. The day features a host of hands-on activities, as well as heaps of fun things to do and see. The Fiesta is set in one of Fremantle’s most beautiful parks, which is the last remnant of natural bush within the City’s boundaries. It’s a great day out for families with children.

Vocalist and songwriter Shameem enchants her audiences with her heartfelt, personal stories and spiritual influences in her songs. Born in Australia to a Chinese-Malaysian father and an Iranian mother has influenced Shameem’s distinctive eclectic approach to music. Her unique fusion of 90s R&B grooves with the melodic sensibility of 70s soul and a subtle twist of jazz has seen her frequently compared to such artists as Alicia Keys, Sade and Michael Jackson.

OS CINCO SENTIDOS

Emma Marie Davis (Stage Whispers) “is a charming singing storyteller” as she takes us on a journey into her unusual childhood where she grew up with more people in her house than Snow White had dwarfs. Told through story and song, and featuring music from Disney movie musicals, Once Upon a Time is a hilarious look at how one little girl got the attention she wished for.

An apocalyptic love-story about two ex-lovers reconnecting with very little time left and a lot of gaps to fill in. A theatrical exploration of what happens after a relationship and how to move on from there.

This show will ignite your senses and a spectrum of feelings. Four couples in four dances; the playful Samba, the sensual Zouk, the romantic Tango and the fiery Salsa with live music—share their passion and delights of Latin America.

The Astonishing Johnny Domino (member of the 2013 Fringe World Awards’ Best Circus ‘Briefs’), has gathered together the most eclectic group of oddities ever brought to Fremantle. Featuring Strongman The Astonishing Johnny Domino, Circus Carnis’ pain man Reverend Butcher, samurai Kaneda Cruz and the mentalist Magnus Danger Magnus.

Direct from a sellout tour of the largest fringe festivals of North America, comes a portrait of a clown in crisis, told through circus, spoken word and hip-hop. This fresh, dynamic, visceral style of storytelling will make you laugh and hit you hard. For decades Ross Vegas has pounded the pavements of the world, from the cobbled squares of old Europe, to the arid frontiers of remote Australia, surviving on nothing but a frayed wit and a battered suitcase of circus props.  Warning: Strong Language and Adult Themes 16+.
