After three sell-out seasons at Fringe World Perth, the creators of La Soirée could be forgiven for sticking with a winning formula and bringing La Soirée 4.0 to Perth in 2018, no doubt to further packed houses.

But what would be the fun in that? Introducing Club Swizzle, which takes out the small circus ring and introduces a combined bar and runway for the performers to jump, strut, roll, spin and prowl upon.

One Punch Wonder at the Actors' Hub

It was my second visit to The Actors’ Hub in less than a week. This time I was there to see One Punch Wonder, an original play developed as part of their 4x4x4 program for the Fringe World Festival.

As I walked into the theatre, I saw that the set had been transformed into a boxing ring. I took a seat “ringside”, though the intimate venue allowed everyone in attendance to be close to the action.

The Tap Pack Turn it On at Fringe

It was a cool, balmy evening as we waited for our show at the Pleasure Gardens in Northbridge.

The pre-show stage was lit in an inviting, purple blue haze reminiscent of the smoke filled nightclubs from the 50's and 60's –not surprising considering that the Tap Pack are a modern day blend of the Rat Pack style and music mixed in with pulsating hot tap footwork and beats, along with some amazing finesse and brilliant showmanship.

As the show kicked off, 3 good looking and fit men (Rohan, Sam and Thomas) dressed in razor sharp suits strutted their stuff with slick moves and incredibly quick toe tapping.

Pool (No Water) at the Actors' Hub

I didn’t know what to expect when I walked into The Actors’ Hub for the first time, but I was immediately welcomed in and invited to take a seat and have a drink.

A duo performed live acoustic songs in the foyer while we waited for the show – delayed slightly due to some technical difficulties – to begin.

The show was Mark Ravenhill’s play Pool (No Water) – presented by The Actors’ Hub as part of their 4x4x4 program for Fringe World.

4x4x4 features four actors (Nicholas Allen, Adam Droppert, Andrew Dunstan, and Christian Tomaszewski) performing four plays directed by Amanda Crewes over four weeks.

In Pool (No Water), they play a nameless group of pretentious, profane, drug-addled artists.
