From the last week of January to the end of Feb, it's an action packed time in the city.
Fringe World kicks off in a few days, which is then backed up by PIAF - plus throw in some great shows from BSSTC and the choice can be overwhelming...
So we have gone through the programs and picked out our fav's.

January 30 2016, Art Gallery of Western Australia.
Something a bit cool, and very different for the Art Gallery - Ryan Trecartin 6 Movies will be showing at the Art Gallery of WA.
Ryan Trecartin is considered to be an artist of our moment, with the New Yorker recently dubbing him ‘a video art visionary’ whose work is full of ‘breaking news from the future.’
A unique exhibition for AGWA, this collection of six films is shown daily back-to-back to transport viewers into Trecartin’s poetic world.

2 February 2016 Palais Des Glaces Spiegeltent.
Holding the fort at the new Elizabeth Quay Fringe World Fairgrounds is LIMBO.
A dark circus spectacular; fire breathers, contortionists and illusionists will transport the audience to a sinister netherworld.
But it's not just the show we are excited about because for the first three weeks of opening, Lizzy Quay will be putting on a laser and light show spectacular each night from 8pm, to create Perth’s biggest ever water show.
The new Fringe World Fairground will delight visitors as it will be reminiscent of the original fairground that was located on William Street in the 1920s, and will include The Urban Roller Club, an enormous outdoor roller rink and an Outdoor Dancefloor.
LIMBO is an award winning show, making its WA debut – get your tickets HERE
January 31 2016, Rooftop @ Noodle Palace.
Happening at one of the best venues this year (who doesn't bloody love a Rooftop!), Crap Music Rave Party is exactly what it says. Dance the night away to some classic tunes under stars.
The man running the show, Tomas Ford, will take requests ('as long as they're crap'), so get your Barbie Girl, MMM bop and Mariah Carey ready - this will be awesome.
