RCC (formerly Royal Croquet Club) is back to where it all began in Adelaide with a bold, new-look programme.
The 2021 offering will be filled with physical and participatory theatre, immersive light installations and live music.
"We are excited to be back for Adelaide Fringe 2021. These are very different times for RCC and the world of festivals. We have worked relentlessly with our community to create a reimagined programme that has something for the young and the young at heart this Fringe," Creative Director Stuart Duckworth says.
Back in its spiritual home of Victoria Square, RCC aims to excited Adelaide Fringe-goers with an open-air festival hub, and in 2021, one all-inclusive ticket will give punters access to everything within RCC's programme for that evening.
"Coming back to Victoria Square has special significance for us. We are determined to create an experience that will expand on RCC’s legacy, create new memories and opportunities for South Australian creatives and businesses," Stuart continues.
Headlining this year's programme is The Stables, a concept seeing RCC reunite with Adelaide's Gravity & Other Myths. It provides a safe and ever-evolving source of entertainment and connection that morphs as the days, evenings and weeks carry on throughout the season.
Leading physical theatre company Stalker will present their interactive light spectacular 'Mountain' to RCC in an SA premiere.
The centrepiece for 2021 is inflatable installation Looped by Cyril Lancelin, aka town.and.concrete, exclusively commissioned by RCC and Pulsing Heart, bringing an international edge to Fringe.
Live music will also return with a new curated stage, The Cult Records. It's a place of discovery for music fans, showcasing SA bands and musicians.
RCC 2021 will light up Victoria Square every Thursday-Sunday from 19 February-21 March as part of Adelaide Fringe.
