About this event

'Ghosts' is back after sellout Fringe shows in 2017! Join us in the atmospheric Fremantle Prison Theatre for a fictional multimedia show featuring original horror music and soundscapes. All performed live alongside compelling imagery of Fremantle's architecture and it's ghosts. See some of WA's most haunted buildings brought to life through emotive tunes, eerie sound effects and imaginative ghost portraits.

The original theatre screen used for prisoners will fire up once again, bringing history and imagination to life. Each ghost has a story, each building a unique ambiance. Share in the power and passion of the supernatural landscape of Fremantle. Spooky fun! Rockin' tunes! Witness if you dare!

Highly talented performers include WAAPA jazz graduates and local Perth rockers.

Presented by:

Genrefonix is a Perth based arts/music collective that combines cutting-edge sound engineering and filmmaking techniques to create unique live events. Employing a strong gothic style the creative team often focus on bringing real local histories to life through innovative and surprising mixed media experiences, with the performance venue integrated into the work.

Genrefonix employs popular tropes from ‘genre’ filmmaking to reinvigorate local history for new audiences. A range of musicians and visual artists collaborate on original artworks such as films and soundscapes, as well as augmenting public domain properties through a process of ‘re-editing’ and ‘re-composing’. Artists include WAAPA trained jazz improvisers and members of local rockers Oats Supply, Day of the Dead and many more.
