“New vision, new location”, this is what organisers have in mind for this year’s RCC apart of the 2019 Adelaide Fringe.
The controversial decision to move the home of RCC from Pinky Flat to the University of Adelaide’s North Terrace Campus has drawn criticism as the university admitted it had failed to consult students before signing the deal with RCC.
According to the organiser, the idea is modelled off the Edinburgh Fringe, where a university campus has served as a Fringe venue for over seven decades.
University Vice-Chancellor Peter Rathjen stated that the deal was made in hopes of bringing “more people onto the campus from the community” and added that this would provide students with a myriad of opportunities for internships, experience and casual employment.
RCC will occupy several spaces across the campus including the Maths Lawns, the Cloisters and Bonython Hall. We got exclusive insight into the Goodman Lawns venue, which will host the concierge, bar and disco joint.
DJ divas The Dollar Bin Darlings will perk you back up after your Friday 5pm tute, adorned with costume jewels and boiler suits preaching love and pumping disco beats. Keep an eye out for their little pink disco mobile driving around campus.
A brief insight into this year’s RCC program allowed us to be wowed by a proud world record holder Marawa the Amazing as she showcased crazy hula hoop skills served with a healthy dose of sass and bedazzled two pieces.
Penny Arcade is an exuberant and unrelenting presence as she unapologetically demands the audience to love one another. Accompanied by a troupe of dancers she hired “straight off of Hindley Street”, this act is not for the conservative of mind but for the rest of you – do not miss her.
This just in: Adelaide folk singer Ollie English will be supporting Aloe Blacc, who you might know from Avicci’s hit ‘Wake Me Up’, as apart of the Dusk till Dawn stage.
Feminist activists and headlining act Pussy Riot are at this stage yet to have their Australian visas cleared, but if they do, their performances are limited and are a must see.
