Melbourne Fringe festival: 10 things to see

18 September 2013 9:42 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The next big things in comedy, theatre, dance, art, film and music feature in a packed programme

Every September the Melbourne Fringe festival lurches over the horizon. Last year, 3400 independent artists mounted shows in more than 147 venues across Melbourne, ranging across visual arts, film, music and every kind of performance you could shake a stick at. And then there's the after-show parties at the Fringe Club and the Warren. Between now and 6 October, you need never go home.

The Fringe is proudly open access, so make it part of your schedule to see some artists you've never heard of before: they might be the next big thing. Choosing among hundreds of acts is tough, but I screwed up my courage, plunged into the programme and excavated some promising acts. Here, in no particular order, are my top 10 picks.

Yes Dance
