The Parlour & The Little Palais at Fringe World, Perth

February 18, 2024

The Little Palais and The Parlour return for the third year to be part of Fringe World.

The Parlour’s enchanting wooden facade is adorned with feature artwork in Victorian style, hand painted by Melbourne Scenic-Artist Ulla Taylor. Finished with a brilliant blue exterior, white canvas roof, and a rich maroon and navy velvet interior, The Parlour echoes a bygone era. Immediately evocative of Victorian circuses and opium dens, the decadent wooden tent offers alluring notions of the dark, the exotic and the unfamiliar.

Entirely free-standing, its full wooden floor allows a flexible interior layout (including the ability for cabaret-lounge set up or three-tier seating bank). With in-built rigging points allowing variable theatrical lighting rigs, and a central circus aerial load, The Parlour is set to be the star of many events to come.

“The Parlour is an intimate and unique venue with amazing sight lines for the audience.” - Katie Dixon, Artrage, WA

The Little Palais - The striking high-contrast design of The Little Palais demands attention in any setting. The alternating bands of colour tease the viewer’s perception; is it light on dark or dark on light, are the lines expanding or contracting? Did that tent just move? Like a kaleidoscope, the pattern seems to constantly rearrange, never settling for long; a precursor to the ever-changing experience within.

“The Little Palais was absolutely fabulous and we loved having it at the event. It is such a gorgeous and eye-catching venue and worked perfectly for both dance parties.” - Laura Raine, Floriade Nightfest.

 “The Little Palais is a small but mighty performance space.” - Perth Fringe
