Saturday, August 12th, 2017

A young woman on her bicycle retraces the 100-mile route of The Berlin Wall, relives the history of its Rise and Fall, and confronts the subsequent Impact of the victorious West on Berlin's rapidly changing, living & breathing cityscape.


Featuring sultry songs, satirical sock puppets, slam poetry, street art, and plenty of propaganda - this multimedia Cold War Cabaret ain't your average history lesson...  Piece-by-piece, Devon More builds a Wall of Sound onstage using her curious assortment of musical instruments and an electronic looping station.


Fresh from earning a Frankie Award nomination for Creativity during a runaway first appearance at the Montreal Fringe, Devon More Music presents 6 performances of BERLIN WALTZ this August at the 2017 Nanaimo Fringe Festival:


Sat. Aug. 12 @ 8:00pm


Sun. Aug. 13 @ 3:30pm


Wed. Aug. 16 @ 7:30pm


Thurs. Aug. 17 @ 5:45pm


Fri. Aug. 18 @ 9:00pm


Sat. Aug. 19 @ 7:15pm


Fascism is BACK, and Walls are SO hot right now, so come see how a rock-solid Wall is constructed...then learn how to TEAR IT DOWN!


All performances in the Dodd Narrows Room (Nanaimo Fringe Venue #1) in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.


NOTE: Entry to Dodd Narrows Room in VICC is at 80 Commercial Street.


Tickets ($12) available in advance at www.nanaimofringe.com/tickets
