Some of WA's most haunted buildings brought to life
Fremantle Prison is a building with dark and forbidding past, redolent with ghosts and misery.
So no better place could be found to host Perth Fringe World'sThe Ghosts of Fremantle, a mixed media, multi-media show of live music, light and sound presented by Genrefonix, 'a Perth based arts/music collective that combines cutting edge sound engineering and filmmaking techniques to create unique live events.'
The show is described as "a visual feast told through story, black humour and haunting soundscapes narrated by WA's most famous bushranger Moondyne Joe, a former inmate as he takes the crowd on a journey through Fremantle's dark past."
It features musicians from WAAPA jazz graduates and local Perth Rockers.
The Ghosts of Fremantle is on at Fremantle Prison, 1 The Terrace, Fremantle for three performances on the 24th February at 7:00pm, 8.15pm and 9.30pm.
Tickets cost $20.00 and are available from the Perth Fringe World website here.
