The Adelaide Cabaret Fringe today announces over 40 events across 15 different venues for its 10th-anniversary program to be celebrated from the 3rd – 25th June.
The 10th-anniversary program features the best independent homegrown and national cabaret – representing the breadth of artistic expression in Australian Cabaret with a diverse lineup of new and familiar names.
The program is highlighted by the inclusion of Australia’s velvet-voiced Mikelangelo, with his triumphant one-man tribute to Leonard Cohen. Acclaimed the world over, from the Sydney Opera House to London’s West End and everywhere in-between, Mikelangelo has made a name for himself as one of the best in the business and one not to miss. Mikelangelo will be joined by special guests including Cabaret Fringe Festival Creative Director Jennifer Kingwell and local songwriters Koral and Anthony Callisto (of Cosmo Thundercat).
Martin Pascoe offers Cabaret with an Indigenous Twist. A hilarious new spin on a show that has played both the Spirit Festival AND the NAIDOC Ball with performances by a Host of local Aboriginal talent. Join MC Pascoe Braun as Indigenous Cabaret finally takes centre stage.
Heightening the 10th-anniversary celebrations, The Cabaret Fringe Festival will host a one-weekend-only party to open the festival at the Freemason’s Lodge from the 2nd – 3rd June. A chance to celebrate 10 years of diversity, festivities, and independent cabaret, the Opening Weekend Gala at the Freemason’s Lodge will include host, International Superstar and Sex Symbol Hans, and offering mischievous social satire, raucous circus-gypsy style songs will be Anya Anastasia, along with a full program of festivities and late-night antics.
Other program highlights announced today include gender transcendent diva, cabaret artiste, jazz singer & community activist Mama Alto with pianist extraordinaire Miss Chief, the much loved act of the gorgeous, talented and wickedly funny Dolly Diamond, will be keeping audiences on the edge of their seats, while Nicole O Rielley takes to the stage like a pissed of Regina Specktor: dropping F-Bombs, singing hate songs, in Publicly Private.
