An amazing weekend of artistic talent! If you missed it check out the work around and on the North Fremantle Rail Bridge, magic! Well done Sherrie and all involved.
Curated by Sherrie Wilson Projects, Underline set out to revive the pillars of the North Fremantle Rail Bridge with a splash of colour from six local artists, accompanied by Italy’s Nemco. The project featured an all-star lineup of Perth’s favourite visual talents including Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Amok Island, Fecks, Ayres, Jessee Lee Johns (whose work you might know by the moniker Hosae), Ayres and Nemco. The project was funded by the City of Fremantle and sponsored by The Butcher Shop and Old Bridge Cellars.
The images released form this production just look beautiful and it’s looking to be a wonderful performance. Adapted from the award winning book by Margaret Wild & Ron Brooks it takes you on a journey through scorched scrubland and ochre deserts told through a fusion of puppetry and dance.
Fox highlights the constant battle between remaining faithful and falling for temptation, and reminds us that the strength of friendship can give us the courage to get through difficult times. Fox, Dog and Magpie’s timeless story will leave you with questions that may take a lifetime to answer…

The best burgers in Perth are on our doorstep.
Yes really and they’re only available Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at The Mantle. The menu is small but you don’t need variety as these burgers are pretty much perfect. Brioche buns, Kraft cheese, crunchy pickle with hand-made burgers served medium-rare. You can even get a generous spoonful of mac ‘n’ cheese in there. Seating is really limited so there’s lots of people standing around eating. Be prepared to queue and watch the staff grill up a storm while you wait.
Where: The Mantle, 1 James St, Fremantle WA 6160
When: Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm
