The old favourites come back to renew acquaintances and the mermaids swim in chlorine and La Soiree and Limbo give us exquisite and hugely professional performances that transform the city of Perth into a cultural wonderland.

Here are my favourite photos from a very personal experience:

Perth’s Fringe Festival finishes a triumphant run for Director Amber Hasler and Marcus Canning and their hardworking and visionary crew tonight with a newly minted Blaz Award which honours  Perth playwright George Blazevich (photo below) for the best new WA stage script. George Blazevich passed away last week aged 63.

Fringe World has transformed the city and turned it into   a living and breathing organism. It has attracted Perth people to the edgy underground of the art world  and some 900,000 people have attended the shows on offer and the Festival has sold tickets to the tune of $9 million. Fringe World director Amber Hasler said that organisers always looked for ways to improve the event.

“We have seen the power of what the festival is able to achieve for Perth and for artists,” she said. “We are very proud of that.”

People have embraced the city and Elizabeth Quay in a new love affair.  Shows like the astonishing Limbo on the Elizabeth Quay and La Soiree and underground shows like Pips Lab: Shadows in the Clouds from Amsterdam have mesmerised and delighted audiences. It is delightful that the fringe dwellers are the new owners of the city.
