Cultural Renegades Take Over Ebenezer Place

Fringe Performers Dance-Off in Ebenezer Place

Adelaide Fringe performers Cultural Renegades flew in from around the country and shortly before their first show, met up with fashion stylists from boutiques in Rundle Street East and Ebenezer Place, to be dressed in some of their favourite labels. Not far from their performance venue in Adelaide’s buzzing East End, members of the hip-hop dance troupe were decked out in the latest  new season collections from Flannel, Leonard St, Seafolly and Jack London. Despite their diverse backgrounds and wildly different styles, they could each find an outfit to suit!

In a spirited, spontaneous performance when they had all gathered to check out each other’s outfits, they clapped, sang and hip-hopped in the middle of Ebenezer Place. Upstairs office workers were drawn to the windows, boutique managers took out their phones, and passers-by, including comedian Dave Hughes, took a moment or three to check them out!

Meet Cultural Renegades, styled in some of Australia’s best known fashion labels, in Adelaide’s liveliest fashion and dining precinct.
