Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 - Adelaide Fringe
Adelaide’s streets will be paved with golden entertainment this weekend when an eclectic bunch of international street performers and roving artists take over the city for the Adelaide Street Theatre Festival.

Be amazed as a four-time Guinness World Record holder does extraordinary things with an ordinary soccer ball; a world-renowned sword swallower juggles a machete, a butcher’s knife and an axe atop a three metre unicycle; award-winning acrobats perform break dancing, contortion and acro-balance in the air, on their backs and with very little clothing; and a 1960s beauty queen displays a tongue as sharp as her handbag-twirling finale.

That’s just the beginning of the fun as Australia’s wildest street theatre festival takes to Rundle Mall and Rymill Park with performers from across Australia, Argentina, Switzerland, Britain, Ireland and Canada.

On Sunday, March 6, the festival gets even bigger when the Adelaide Fringe parade returns its drumming, dancing and flag waving elements to the east end’s streets. The choreographed sections of the parade, incorporating hundreds of dancers, percussionists and flag wavers, will be re-staged along Rundle Road and East Tce at 2pm.

It’s energetic mayhem for the whole family for three days and nights of hilarious action and phenomenal feats.
