About the Show
Presented by Darebin Arts and Melbourne Fringe.
Join in a Deaf dance party, or bust a move in the world’s smallest nightclub at Melbourne Fringe event, A Weekend for Everybody.
Families are invited to participate in a weekend full of high-energy, fun and accessible events at Northcote Town Hall.
No blip is too blippy and no squelch is too squelchy – young people can experiment with samplers, drum machines and keyboards to create electronic music.
Joseph (JOF) O’Farrell has created the world’s smallest nightclub. Young people are invited to share their best dance moves, which are then projected onto the Northcote Town Hall that very evening!
Hone your moves in a free public dance class on 22 September or an accessible dance workshop on 23 September. No experience needed, leg warmers optional.
Free Event. Booking for the workshop essential: http://www.darebinarts.com.au/whats-on/infinity-dance-jam
Melbourne Fringe artist-in-residence Sibylle Peters / Theatre of Research (Germany) set up an epic battle of Truth or Dare in Civic Square at Northcote Town Hall between adults and children. In public. What could possibly go wrong?
Tune in to the FReeZA team as they rock out from 12 – 2pm Saturday and Sunday.
Rock star of her times, Minnie Woolsley (1880 – 1960) was a freak show performer, a film actress, and most importantly, free from life in the asylum. She starred in Freaks (1932) as Koo Koo the Bird Girl, a film that was banned for 30 years for its controversy.
Equipped with an uncanny resemblance to Minnie, and a undeniable higher calling; Sarah Houbolt uncovers this cult classic film. Sarah brings you a haunting, captivating, visceral experience of the beauty of difference in this one woman show.
Tickets: $25 -$28
