A team of actors is testing its mettle four nights a week over the next month by performing a different show each night. In 4x4x4, the same team from The Actors’ Hub will perform four separate 60-minute shows during Fringe World—four nights, four shows, across four weeks.

Director Amanda Crewes described it as an amazing challenge for the actors. Implied Consent gives a 360-degree perspective on what people believe consent is, giving an often harrowing exploration as to how they imply it.

"The challenge was creating a piece that is both entertaining and truthful to the devastating impact this issue has on us culturally," Crewes said.

In L'Appel Du Vide, the actors use physical theatre and Jacques Lacoq basel masks to explore different stages of life and how the relationships we form, and connections we yearn for, are impacted by things we think we want.

Crewes described it as otherworldly and a rare opportunity to see basel masks being used in Perth theatre.

"The story is told through movement only so we spent a lot of time making sure the physical storytelling was clear," she said.

The Les Darcy Show is a high octane, action-packed piece featuring dancing and fighting set in the early 1900s, focusing on the short but incredibly full life of the Australian boxing legend. Called the Maitland Terror, Darcy won 52 of his 56 fights and was crowned middleweight champion of the worl—all before his tragic end in 1917 at the tender age of 21.

"The actors have had to master Irish dances and physical boxing," Crewes said. "They have to throw a punch—and a good one at that!

"It has rich and gritty Aussie, Irish and American characters and, at its core, it’s a celebration."

Steve Irwin and Dame Edna Everage are brought to life in An Evening with…as they explore the question: who is the ultimate Australian? In a style reminiscent of Have You Been Paying Attention?, both characters battle it out as they talk sex, politics and religion.

"We wanted to honour these characters everyone knows so well while saying something about divisive thinking," Crewes said.

Please note: the plays feature occasional coarse language, sexual and drug references and violence.
