1 – 30th September


This year, The Sydney Fringe is proud to present an exciting and unique partnership with World Square.

Sydney Fringe Festival and World Square are proud to commission the incredible The Beautiful and Useful Studio to create a sensational, show-stopping inflatable artwork that will be housed at World Square throughout September.

The piece explores radical self-expression that is empowering, inclusive and playful. Want to grab some dumplings and see a drama, sip cabernet and watch a cabaret or hit up a drag show and dine? To complement the artwork, we are thrilled to introduce the Cultural Concierge Program. Cultural Concierge will set up shop onsite at World Square from August 18 through September and will tailor the perfect Fringe experience, just for you.

Let us guide you through the beast that is Fringe! Throughout September at World Square.



The wearables worn by our Fringe Faces this year were created by Matthew Aberline and Maurice Goldberg from The Beautiful and Useful Studio


Their Sydney-based studio expands across a wide range of digital and analogue mediums, typically focusing on art fabrics and architectural forms, and their fun and gregarious fabric inflatables have gained global attention. With a strong focus on sustainability, nearly all fabric used in the studio’s work is made from recycled PET plastic drinking bottles.


Using colour, scale, and wildly expressive abstract art to tell important stories, Matt and Maurice have created work globally, including in NYC at the United Nations General Assembly, and the Oculus at the World Trade Centre for World Pride. Using fabrics made from recycled materials, this Fringe Wearables Collection is a flashback to previous fashion work, before evolving into creating architectural scale installations.
