Happy Easter to everyone! It's been a little while, so I thought I should fill you in on all the exciting stuff going on in Adelaide.
It's been very hot.
But seriously, the Fringe Festival has ended now, it went for about a month all up. We saw a few shows: Ross Noble; Claire Hooper; Best of the Edinburgh Fest (all comedians, and all quite entertaining). By far the best thing we saw though was La Clique. It's a little bit sideshow, a little bit circus and a little bit burlesque. There was a couple of gymnastic guys who balanced on each other's heads, and a contortionist who fit his body through two tennis racquets. The contortionist was my favourite to be honest, he was both disturbing and hilarious, plus at one point he fell off the stage - who doesn't like that? There was also a rollerskater, someone with hula hoops, a guy in a bathtub and another guy with disturbingly high pants. I can't recommend it strongly enough, it's such a fun show to see.
The Adelaide Festival of the Arts has also ended - it had a public light show on North Terrace that was so popular they extended it for a couple of weeks, which was just as well because we only got to see it the other evening. It is really impressive.. Essentially they project lights onto the great old buildings along North Terrace.. but they create spectacular work with that simple idea. We didn't take photos because you really need a good camera with a long exposure and a tripod.. but thanks to the magic of the internet you can see some photos here and here.
In about an hour we're off to pick Sam up from the airport, he's visiting over Easter which should be fun. I hope you're all having an enjoyable time and hopefully we'll catch up around Christmas (or at least eventually)
