Fringe Festival in Docklands

27 Sep 2011

By Bethany Williams

Looking for art, culture or perhaps a bit of fun? Look no further than Docklands.

The Melbourne Fringe Festival is currently taking place and three different events will be held in Docklands over the duration of the festival.

The first Docklands fringe event is Fractured Flicks, which takes place at Shed 4 on Friday, September 30 at 7pm.  The event is an experimental project, which merges film, live music, projection and live improvisation and acting.

Ticket prices for the two-hour event range from $11 for a group ticket (per person for four people) to $18 for a full-priced ticket.

The Cosmo the Clown Comedy Show premiered at The Hub on September 24 and runs until October 9.

27-year-old Joel Spence, who is bringing Cosmo to the stage, said those who come to see the show could expect plenty of magic, heaps of laughs and lots of fun.

This is the fifth year Joel has travelled from Sydney to be involved in the Melbourne Fringe Festival. He has also performed at the Adelaide Fringe Festival and the Edmonton Fringe Festival in Canada.

The Cosmo the Clown Comedy Show will take place at 1pm and 5pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until October 9, excluding October 8, when there will be one show at 6pm. Tickets are $10 and $6 for concession.

For enthusiasts of Latin American culture, Carnaval Latino is the perfect event.

On October 7 Shed 4 will be transformed into a Latin American street party. There will be live bands, performers and food vendors.

Carnaval Latino will run from 5pm-1am with tickets ranging from $10 for concession to $15 for full price.

The Melbourne Fringe Festival began on September 21 and runs until October 9.

Fractured Flicks was devised by the Shed 4 collective, which is a creative collaboration between Open Channel, Unscripted Business, projectionist Nick Azidis and musician Richard Zatorski.

Unscripted Business founder Gina Kennedy said the project was a combined effort and was not driven by one medium. “It’s a unique opportunity to create something spectacular,” she said.

Carnaval Latino is presented by El Tarro and Samba Cine Club, in association with the Melbourne Institute of Pataphysics.
