Apr 18, 2019 to Apr 19, 2019
1 The Terrace, Fremantle WA 6160, Australia
The Fremantle International Street Arts Festival (FISAF), a globally renowned experience famous for its eclectic array of talented street performers, is back for 2019 – and it’s promising a bang.
You will see the historic streets of Fremantle burst to life as performers transform the city into a world stage over the Easter long-weekend. This year’s four-day festival promises 28 international performers from 10 different countries, including France, Switzerland, USA and China; descending on the town.
Festival-goers can expect to be blown away by never-before-seen shows in Australia, as well as returning performances, both of which will rove through the port Town over the long weekend. Some of the high-calibre entertainers performing at this year’s Festival include:
- Cho Kairin: Award-winning and death-defying, the ‘King of Chinese Acrobats’ brings a lifetime of acrobatic mastery that will thrill and surprise Fremantle for the first time ever
- The Space Cowboy: Back by extremely popular demand, one of the most innovative Sword Swallowers alive today, The Space Cowboy will bring shock and amazement to the streets
- Nuptial Ropes: A burlesque wedding performance, with a foolish charm. Hailing from Switzerland, this couple performs a modern circus act that combines physical theatre, acrobats and mime
- Bug n’ Buzz: What may look like an ordinary café terrace to you, is a playground for Bug n’ Buzz! Buzz transforms cutlery, glassware, and tabletops into musical instruments with endless sample loops to create a soundscape for Bug to dance her way robotically through and around, in this infectious and innovative concordance.
Following a sensational response from locals at last year’s Seraphim Bar, FISAF 2019 will welcome an array of pop up bars for festival-goers to sit back and enjoy the Festival – all while sipping a local brew. This includes the Newport Hotel, which will present some of WA’s best musicians throughout the weekend.
