IN CHANGING TIMES, IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE.
Formerly known as the Royal Croquet Club, RCC Fringe is proud to bring you something different – a whole new space for a whole new festival season. RCC Fringe is a fully-curated international arts happening; it’s a party hub; it’s a festival in its own right, at the heart of the city in the best of all possible locations. It’s a dining and drinking destination; it’s a 31-day music festival. And so much more.
RCC Fringe’s brand spanking new location is none other than the University of Adelaide’s North Terrace campus. Having played a major role in the Arts for over a century, the University is excited to be placed at the beating heart of a vibrant and thriving event.
“RCC Fringe is evolving into something way beyond anything that could ever be staged in a circus tent. The extraordinary campus and venues of the University of Adelaide open a whole new world of possibilities for a genuinely great, compelling, accessible, contemporary program.” David Sefton, RCC Fringe artistic director.
David was previously Adelaide Festival director and director of such events as Unsounds Adelaide and Grounded. He is joined by creative director Stuart Duckworth, one of the original founders of the Royal Croquet Club. Together, they have curated a program with a focus on live music, visual art, physical circus and dance. Amongst the throng of leading performance artists are these gems:
In an Australian exclusive, Penny Arcade brings her outrageous humour, razor sharp satire, theatre, cabaret and erotic go-go dancing to Adelaide. BITCH!DYKE!FAGHAG!WHORE! is a timeless rock ‘n’ roll anthem; a clever and hilarious performance; a passionate and powerful plea for love.
This undisputed queen of the New York underground is a must-see, but you will have to be quick! Penny Arcade’s nightly shows will end on the 23rd February. Don’t miss out!
Natalie Rose, Mish Grigor and Zoe Coombs Marr sure talk a lot of shit. First loves, bowel movements, birthing moans and the global financial crisis: they tackle the messy issues, and it’s all on tape.

Briefs are back. Coming from the future to test the limits of masculinity and decency with their iconic brand of circus, drag, burlesque and comedy.
