Melbourne Fringe hits Docklands

03 Sep 2015

Melbourne Fringe hits Docklands Image

It’s Melbourne Fringe Festival time and there’s plenty happening in Docklands.

This year sees the return of the festival’s keynote project Uncommon Places, which will see 18 emerging artists create artworks in unique locations.

Three of these artworks can be found in Docklands’ Victoria Harbour.

Emah Fox, Leanne Hall and Amy Tsilemanis or, as they are collectively known, Friskis Fillis, have created an audio work which can be experienced at the D18 tram stop at Bourke and Collins streets.

Participants will need a smart phone and headphones to listen to Promenade, which explores women’s experiences of public spaces and takes listeners on a walking tour.

Running for about 30 minutes, the audio work can be found at http://www.melbournefringe.com.au/promenade.

Another work from the Uncommon Places project is The Test, near Victoria Green.

The collaborative mural work by Melbourne artists Mit and Chehehe challenges viewers to obey a simple, but almost impossible, command – “Don’t Look”.

The third and final Docklands-based installation is Sharon Flanagan’s video work Threshold, which is being screened at the Library at the Dock.

All three works can be viewed in Docklands until October 5.

The Docklands Blues Music Festival is also part of the Fringe Festival and will fill Docklands with music and rhythm on Sunday, October 4.

Featuring 20 bands, three main stages, free and ticketed events and a line-up of some of Australia’s most accomplished blues musicians and international artists, the event has something for everyone.

For more information visit http://www.docklandsbluesmusicfestival.com.au

Also taking place in Docklands this month as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival is site-specific work Scenes on the Yarra on September 27. See our story on page 7.
