Melbourne Fringe Festival presents Future Futures in response to the recent confirmation of the postal survey on marriage equality. Employing the power of art to tackle this issue, Melbourne Fringe has enlisted some of the Festival’s fringiest artists to take to the stage at the Festival Club on Sunday 17 September and raise awareness for people to post their votes, and to vote ‘YES’!
Future Futures’ queer hosts Isabel Angus and Charles Purcell will get hitched in a mock wedding, while guest artists including Mama Alto, Brianna Williams, The Shania Choir and the cast of How To Kill The Queen Of Pop (Tom Halls, Adam Ibrahim, Sam Russo and Simone French) will flex their Fringe muscles to expose the plebiscite for the shmebiscite that it truly is.
Through musical tributes, dance routines, drag performance and political comedy, as well as some big participatory moments, Future Futures harnesses the power of love in the fight for marriage equality. Entry is free but donations to the marriage equality campaign are encouraged.
Melbourne Fringe is a big, bold and gloriously messy celebration of independent art that takes over the city from 14 September to 1 October 2017. With 440 events in 164 venues, you can see established and emerging artists stand side-by-side, making Fringe a fun, affordable way to experience art in Melbourne.
