10 Nights in Port is a celebration of winter and the arts, presenting a raft of contemporary music, theatre, visual arts, film and live performance in July. Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt has highlighted that the program features projects by local and international artists which are one-off, site specific or participatory.
In its ninth year, the highly successful Hidden Treasures winter music series returns, now with the new Future Treasures as well, which is set to showcase new and young performers. Additional music highlights this year also include Cinema Prague reuniting their original line up for a rare performance at the Fremantle Town Hall, and Felicity Groom‘s special musical and visual experience at St John’s Anglican Church to celebrate the release of her third album.
Feast of the Deceiver, presented by Secret Squirrel Productions, is a WA first and will lure guests into a world of ulterior motives – an immersive game and luxury dining. The luscious six-course dinner will occur in a secret central Fremantle location and will keep diners on their toes. Also premiering, The Miss Behave Gameshow is a freewheeling, high-energy variety whirlwind. Direct from her sold out seasons in Las Vegas and Sydney, London cabaret queen Amy Saunders (La Soiree, La Clique) will intoxicate audiences with her special brand of glimering chaos.
Between shows, audiences can take a Soak in a series of outdoor relaxation stations where they can submerge and unwind or warm themselves by one of the many Festival Fires domed around the city. The Festival Club will also offer a leisurely hangout throughout 10 Nights in Port, with a series of hearty communal dining experiences, delicious drinks and music.
