Whether in comedy, music, sculpture or dance, several artists with ties to the Murraylands are making their mark on this year's Adelaide Fringe Festival.
Actor Jake "Mac" McNamara is the star of Box and Cox, a quintessentially English comedy playing at the Adelaide Wine Centre.
It tells the story of a hatter and a printer who unknowingly share an apartment – one works a day shift, the other a night shift.
The show is being produced by a company called Maniacal Arts, whose members include Murray Bridge music teacher Jack Love and former resident Ben Furnell.
Two more ex-pats are producing Fleetwood Mac show Go Your Own Way: last year’s Boogie at the Bunyip promoter Connor Jolly and his mentor Phil Bathols, whose company Spiritworks has staged tours by Jose Carreras, Ravi Shankar, Bear Grylls and more.
Koral and the Goodbye Horses will play hits by the 1970s band.
This year's Fringe program also included two events in the Murraylands: the Dupang Festival, three days of dancing and culture on the Coorong which were hosted by the Tal-Kin-Jeri dance group late last month; and the Palmer Sculpture Biennial, which will open at 1pm on March 17.
The sculpture show will feature works by Germany's Carlotta Brunetti, Sweden's Karl Chilcott, American Peter Lundberg and Switzerland's Titus Eichenberger as well as more than 20 Australian artists.
