Sullivan and Bok stand up at the Adelaide Fringe

Alex Croker reviews Sullivan and Bok’s February 15th Adelaide Fringe show and talked to them earlier about their comedy work.

Sullivan and Bok are two Melbourne based comedians calling Adelaide home this Fringe Festival. These witty self-confessed ‘hipster magpies’ perform much more individually than as a pair.

They’re playing at the Red Room at the Austral Hotel, 15th Feb until 2nd March, 6pm, no shows Mondays. Read more…

#BBTW – Beef, Butter, Truffles and Wine at the Adelaide Central Market

Adelaide Central Market is much more than a meeting place for friends, a place to purchase fresh local produce, and a place to get a bargain on Saturday morning. Adelaide Central Market also offers activities every Friday, always food centred, often focussing on local produce.

This Friday 6th of July at 5pm, four greats of the Australian food and wine community will be at the south-west corner of the Adelaide Central Markets for ‘Beef, Butter, Truffles and Wine’.

It’s all free!

Gareth Hart’s Ellipsis carves a unique web

Soft harps, strong deep breaths, intricate lighting… Gareth Hart eclipses space, emotions and consciousness as he carves a unique web expressing his purest emotions. Each performance unique, majestic, hollowing.

Gareth believes that dance expresses the internal psychological conflict of man; allowing both complexity and confusion. It is the intrinsic psychology expressed through ‘alien and abstract’ choreography that has lead to his success on the east coast.

Finally, he is coming to Adelaide.

This distinctive entertainer, currently completing his masters in choreography shall only be performing five general admittance shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, March 7-11.
