An tutu wearing astronaut taking pride of place in Adelaide's Victoria Square! These larger than life inflatable models symbolise the 2010 Adelaide Fringe. They were created as a result of this year's Fringe poster competition winner.
The poster artist David Capriotti explained the design is intended to capture the iconic nature of the Fringe. “I came up with the idea of a tutu wearing astronaut because it illustrates how something everyday and familiar, like our city, is completely transformed when the Adelaide Fringe is on.” (From the Fringe 2010 website - Read the full report here)
Adelaide's Fringe commenced in 1960, running in alternate years to our Festival of Arts. Since 2007 it has been run every year. It is the largest Arts' event in Australia and second largest in the world; Edinburgh takes that honour.
This year's program offers over 700 events. What a choice there is! All you need is lots of time and a bit of spare cash. The events are reasonably priced (many around the $20 mark) and some are even free. So far I have managed to see the Fringe Parade (scroll down to see yesterday's post) and one theatre performance, Bienvenue à Brelville - most enjoyable.
