It’s a busy month for festivals in Tasmania with the much-loved Cygnet Folk Festival, MOFO and much more. In Hobart the Fringe takes centre stage with a host of performances.

The Fringe at the Edge of the World features over 30 acts performing in a variety of styles. It runs from this Thursday 9 January through to Sunday 12th at a number of inner-city venues.

Tasmanian Times will be reviewing many shows and this post will be updated regularly straight after we’ve seen the latest.

Tickets are still available for most performances, from comedy to music to quite a few that defy easy categorisation. Please see the Fringe website for show synopses, performance times and venues.

One show you might like to catch is Isabella Valette‘s How Far I’ll Go.  Isabella lifts the lid on the ridiculous and publicly embarrassing extents artists will go to, with unbelievably chaotic and hilarious true stories. Listen to a snippet of her below.

Harassed as a pudding in shopping centres, forced to dance around children’s tables as they eat at parties dressed as a poo emoji, turning up to christenings as a clown…anything for a gig, right?

Isabella is a professionally trained singer, dancer, actor and improviser whose shows include characters, observations, songs and stand-up. She trained at the prestigious Arts Educational Schools London, which is presided over by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and is a senior member of two of Australia’s top improvisation troupes.

Her two Hobart shows are on Sat 11 January 9pm and Sun 12 January 7.30pm, both at the Polish Corner (Club) in New Town. Bookings can be made here.
