Taking over Rymill Park in Adelaide’s east end during Adelaide Fringe, Gluttony is a festival in itself.
Nestled between shady trees, you’ll find bell tents housing a colourful array of shows, bars pouring up local wine, beer and cocktails and food trucks dishing up cuisines from around the world.
With more than 160 diverse fringe acts spanning genres of theatre, cabaret, circus, magic, comedy, dance, music and a stack of family friendly entertainment, Gluttony is the perfect spot to embrace the festivities and make the most of balmy summer evenings. Here are our top five shows to see at Gluttony during the 2020 Adelaide Fringe.
Think a night at the circus is all clowns, gags and juggling? Prepare to have all your preconceptions blown out the window by circus superstars Circolombia. Bringing their high-risk, adrenaline inducing show Acéléré to Adelaide Fringe, this contemporary Columbian circus troop deliver an electric performance combining dance, live music and astounding acrobatics with their signature Latin flare and contagious energy. It’s a Latin dance party set to rival J. Lo and Shakira’s Superbowl performance.
Groove Terminator and the Soweto Gospel Choir’s History of House
After sell-out performances at last year’s Fringe, ARIA-nominated DJ Groove Terminator has teamed up with three-time Grammy winners the Soweto Gospel Choir for the ultimate night out for lovers of dance music. Hit the dancefloor for History of House and dance the night away to the best house music tracks over the years from Donna Summer to Daft Pink, re-imagined for an epic dance celebration.
Haus of Hans: Disco Spektakulär
Disco, dance and drama… enter Hans. The self-dubbed international superstar and local fringe-favourite is back for his biggest show ever, straight from the stages of America’s Got Talent and Edinburgh Fringe. Inspired by the opulent New York Club scene, Haus of Hans: Disco Spektakulär is a glamorous variety show dripping in sequins.
Soulful, sophisticated and now solo. Adelaide-favourite Hugh Sheridan is back with his own show, Unplugged at Gluttony. Sit back and be serenaded by Sheridan’s signature smooth vocals as he performs a diverse set ranging from his own original music to classic favourites.
Equal parts risqué, impressive and outrageous, Rouge is an adults-only cabaret meets circus, with leather pants and sequins aplenty. Returning to Gluttony’s Spiegeltent for Adelaide Fringe 2020 with the biggest iteration of the award-winning show yet, expect a night filled with jaw-dropping acrobatics, operatic cabaret and tongue in cheek burlesque.
