It’s February, and you know what that means…festival season is right around the corner! Overwhelmed by the sheer number of great acts? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with our favorite Adelaide Festival and Adelaide Fringe picks.

 

Express presented by One Eye Open

To start getting yourself into the spirit of Mad March (but in February), Express is a perfect reminder of everything we love about the Adelaide festival season. An exotic burlesque extravaganza featuring an eclectic mix of tap, hip hop, jazz and cabaret…did we also mention that this entire production is in support of the arts? Enjoy a fabulous performance: check. Support the arts: check and check.

Adelaide Festival

The Pulse – Gravity & Other Myths / Aurora (Young Adelaide Voices)

After almost a year of COVID restrictions, it’s safe to say that any sort of gathering now feels like a distant dream, and a FOMO-inducing one at that. But Gravity & Other Myths are making that dream (somewhat of) a reality with this show, fusing acrobats, a choir and the audience in an interactive performance of human connection that will capture your imagination. We’re not in the least bit opposed to a little bit of escapism, if you ask us.

Ticket Price: From $25  

Venue: Her Majesty’s Theatre, 58 Grote St, Adelaide

Rating: G

Dates: Thursday 25th February – Wednesday 3rd March

Fangirls

While some of us may have outgrown our fangirl phase, some of us may not have (no judgment). ‘Fangirls’, is here to show us exactly why we should be embracing our inner fangirl/fanboy. Whether you are/were a Harry Styles stan or an avid footy supporter, this musical ode to love is for all passionate supporters, no matter where your interests may lie.  

Ticket Prices: From $45 

Venue: Ridley Centre, Adelaide Showground

Dates: Saturday 27th February – Sunday 14th March

Adelaide Fringe

Gravity & Other Myths Training Camp

We could go on about Gravity & Other Myths for days. One Fringe show is just not enough, so the group is running a 4-week circus training course for all of us wanting to live out our acrobatic dreams. Partner acrobatics, aerials, contortion…we’re intrigued. To top it off, you’ll get the opportunity to showcase your skills in a Fringe show by the end of camp, if that’s your thing.  

Price: $1400 

Dates: Monday 22nd February – Saturday 20th March

Absolute Riot presented by Miss Friby

The Fringe never fails to serve up some of the best cabaret/burlesque performances out there, but we’re especially excited about this one in particular. It’s not every day that we get to see an ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ finalist perform live. Miss Friby’s one-woman variety show brings it all; choreography, sultry vocals, world-class wit, absurd anecdotes, and lyrical-contemporary-modern-jazz-ballet-magic. Count us in. 

 

Ticket Price: from $22

Venue: The Lark at Gluttony – Rymill Park

Rating: M15+

Dates: Tuesday 2nd March – Saturday 20th March

The Anti-Experts Guide to The Pandemic

Bushfires, a global pandemic, the US elections and Gwyneth Paltrow’s infamous candle were just a few of the sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes bewildering events that earned 2020 its title of ‘The Year from Hell’. Having put it firmly behind us, and in typical Aussie fashion, we’re ready to poke fun at all of the weird, but never wonderful, things to have emerged from a year that none of us will be forgetting anytime soon. 

Ticket Price: From $24.5 

Venue: Rymill Park

Rating: PG

Dates: Saturday 27th February – Sunday 7th March

Three Course Comedy

This show’s merry trio won’t be unfamiliar to you. Michael Shafar, Peter Jones and Joseph Green (from Channel 10’s The Project, ABC’s Comedy Bites, Nova’s Hit’s and Giggles, etc) are coming together to serve you a three-course meal consisting of laughs, laughs and more laughs. A fun, light-hearted night out will definitely be on the menu for this show, and based on the year we had (2020 we’re looking at you), that’s exactly what we need right now.  

Ticket Price: $20-25

Venue: Gluttony – The Piglet, Rymill Park

Rating: M

Dates: Saturday 6th March – Sunday 14th March
