Phoenix Club - Worship Takeover
Monday 25 January 10.00pm
Phoenix Club is an event that will be running Monday – Thursday from 10pm for the duration of the Fringe World Festival, and is geared towards Fringe World artists, Fringe World participants and friends of Fringe World! Entry is free, artists will be doing takeovers and performances to promote their shows, and we have drink specials running, mini circus tents to hang out in, and a dance floor! Come on down and party with us to celebrate Fringe World and all the lovely folks that are involved!
We are excited to have Worship – The Gilded Edition taking over Phoenix Club on Monday 25th January! Performances will take place around 11pm.
Ready thy body and ready thy mind for the annual ritual of Worship, The Gilded Edition.
A ceremony of performance art from deep within the shadows, prepare for the absurd and the unknown. Featuring a curated cast of enthralling West Australian based burlesque, circus, drag and musical performers, this is not your typical cabaret show!
With no host to guide you and no storyline to save you, these acts of worship ask the deliciously provocative question. . .what do you Worship in this world?
“If you are looking for a light-hearted romp, a holy Christian liturgy, turn away now… but if you rejoice in the macabre, the Lynchian, the Gothic or the surreal, Worship will take you to church.” Out In Perth, 2020.
