The Melbourne Fringe Festival is an annual event that transforms Melbourne into a playground of imagination, showcasing emerging and established artists pushing boundaries and redefining artistic expression. Audiences are treated to a diverse range of performances, exhibitions, and experiences, from avant-garde theater to immersive installations, all aimed at challenging conventions and sparking conversations. With its inclusive spirit, the Melbourne Fringe Festival invites everyone to embrace their inner artist and become part of a dynamic, artistic community. It’s a thrilling fusion of tradition and innovation, uniting Melbourne’s creative soul in a month-long extravaganza.

About the Play

A girl returns home from a night out, muscles aching from dancing. A boy she has never seen before sits in her flat, awaiting her return. Assuming the worst, the girl takes a frying pan to the boy’s temple, and when he claims he has been banished from Neverland by Peter Pan, the girl thinks the boy is crazy, high or both. That is until his story begins tugging on a memory she thought she had forgotten…

Drawing on JM Barrie’s mythological tale, Flit is a new work that “caresses the tumultuous”, and “possesses a raw, mesmerising quality” (Arts Hub). It is a drug induced psychosis; a scathed daydream; the remnants of shattered childhood innocence. Directed in a mode that is “stylish, energetic and exciting” (Theatrepeople), Flit occurs entirely in one room, riddled with degenerate nostalgia and pulsating with the kind of intimacy evoked by the most pathological of human tendencies. Flit will leave you feeling like you’ve seen it before – but can’t remember where.
