Adelaide Fringe announces 2014 festival program

KatieThe full program of the 2014 Adelaide Fringe has been launched amongst an array of colourful fete stalls featuring fabulous Fringe artists. New Fringe Ambassador Katie Noonan kicked off the ‘Fringe Fete’ with a beautiful song from the balcony of the Fringe’s Headquarters in Norwood.

“In the 2014 program you will discover world-class music, theatre, circus acts and hundreds of shows, all of which offer something different,” Noonan said.

Fringe Director Greg Clarke highlighted the enormous number of award-winning artists featured in next year’s program as well as the new Victoria Square Hub and the giant Disco Cuttlefish.

“Every Saturday night throughout the Fringe ‘Stobie’ – a 13m long cuttlefish whose skin features a fantastic strobing lighting effect, will flash dance his way through the East End to a disco soundtrack,” Mr Clarke said.

“Everyone will be able to join in the fun by going online in January to  to learn a specially choreographed cuttlefish dance and then be able to ‘strut’ their stuff whenever he appears.”

The 2014 Fringe program features a record 966 events – 107 cabaret shows, 25 circus and physical theatre shows, 112 theatre productions, 269 comedy events, 32 dance shows, 4 film events, 198 music concerts, 113 art exhibitions, 41 children’s events and 64 special events.
