Fly By Night Club
179 High St, Fremantle
7pm, Friday 2 nd December
We present for your delight and puzzlement, Men of the West. Led by director Ryan Morrison, these men have been refining their subtle theatre of pointless grandeur over the past decade, being regulars at the Fairbridge Festival and the Dunsborough Songfest. And picked up a Highly Commended Award at the Adelaide Fringe in 2014.
The Men will deliver a variety of a Capella songs ranging from the haunting beauty of ancient Georgian harmonies to original songs of the quotidian rituals and trials of being a man in today’s world. In so doing, the Men will illuminate for you The Secrets of Mansinging.
They will extend your expectations of a men’s choral group. Welcome to the Men of the West: ‘gentle and sad, even sweet, but also powerful and unmistakably male’.
It is believed that this be-hatted, behemoth of bearded individuals is suspiciously similar to a certain other outfit seen in a very successful season at Perth’s 2016 Fringe World. Who are we to say? The evolution of men is a strange and wonderful thing.
