An Audience With Tomás Ford
Following a hit Edinburgh season, Tomás Ford brings his new Fringe show home to Perth. Smashing together adventurous cabaret and live electronic music, Ford provokes and plays with audiences, guiding them from confusion to crowd-surfing ecstasy.
His debauched shows are a thrilling mix of live video projection, musical gadgetry, myriad costume changes and his baritone crooning. It’s an act that has seen him build national notoriety through the course of fifteen interstate tours, joining Big Day Out’s national Lilyworld lineup and earning opening spots for The Presets, Gary Numan, Regurgitator and Birds Of Tokyo.
