This year the Adelaide Fringe will feature its largest ever number of Aboriginal acts, something we hope will only increase in the future.
From comedy to music, visual art, dance and more, the 2018 program is packed with brilliant Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent – and this handy guide will help you seek them out.
It all begins with Tindo Utpurndee (February 16), the Sunset Ceremony on the lawns of the South Australian Museum, led by Kaurna Custodian Karl Telfer - a breathtaking and moving way to commence the festival with Kaurna greetings of spirit of place displaying new dynamism every year.
The Ngundataki music showcase (February 17) will feature leading contemporary South Australian artists in an intimate evening of language, culture, songs and storytelling, while the inaugural Dupang Aboriginal Culture Festival (February 23-24), hosted by the Tal-Kin-Jeri Dance Group, promises a joyous, two-day celebration of dance at a spectacular waterfront location on the Coorong.
There’s plenty on the program to enjoy – so dive in and explore the vibrant shows, acts and art on offer.
