In this week’s episode of The Adelaide Show, we meet the Adelaide Fringe part two, with more interviews with artists recorded during Steve’s busy morning recording very short chats with performers at the Adelaide Fringe Meet The Media morning.
Also this week, Ralf Hadzic returns. He is the co-star in Steve’s Adelaide Fringe Show, 2 Cats On A Hot Fringe Roof. At the time of publication, only three shows are remaining so be quick. It has been getting excellent reviews. And David Grice joins the team. Not only has he been receiving Steve’s personal messages to buy tickets to his Fringe show, he is a former venue manager with thoughts to share.
Also this week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Coopers.
Our sponsor, Adelaide Night And Day Family Therapy, continues tonight, with occupational therapist, Johanna de Kort.
And in the Musical Pilgrimage, we have a track from Population Of Mars. All will be explained.

It’s Fringe time in Adelaide and as the “party” continues, artists and venue managers are doing the hard slog to get bums on seats. What’s it like behind the scenes? Steve and Ralf Hadzic will unpack some of their thoughts from putting together 2 Cats On A Hot Fringe Roof. And guest, David Grice, a former venue manager who brought the music category to the Fringe, is also part of the show.
Have you rehearsed as much as you would have liked?
How do you balance work demands with “art” demands?
Does doing a Fringe show add stress or relieve stress?
What’s been the most successful way to sell tickets?
What has surprised you, from the operational side?
Peter Goers gave Heather Croall an in depth interview on Smart Arts Sunday a fortnight ago, honing in on the Fringe positioning itself as party central rather than a gathering of artists to put on shows. What have you seen?
In the musical pilgrimage, we have a track called Music for Intelligent Machines (beta version 0.1) by Population Of Mars.
I chose this track because I was so taken by Petra and Cameron (we heard them earlier talking about their Fringe show, Isolate & Izolal. That’s the show that explores what it will mean to be human if and when humans colonise Mars. Would we still be human, or does being human demand being on Earth?
Dan Taylor is the man behind Population Of Mars. He started the project in 2017 and produced all the music on an iPad using Garage Band. The performances are improvised, edited, and then mixed, but his goal this year is to develop a live set.
Dan is passionate about space and sci-fi and thrilled for an Australian Space Agency – based in Adelaide!! He’s secretly hoping to get a job there … oh, not sure I was meant to share that!
