Devon More Music puts the Cool back in the Cold War!

100-miles of the Berlin Wall, with a hypnotic original soundtrack, LIVE at the 2017 Nanaimo Fringe Festival.

In Berlin Waltz, a young woman on her bicycle retraces the 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 at the Dodd Narrows Room (Nanaimo Fringe Venue #1) in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.  Entry to Dodd Narrows Room is at 80 Commercial Street.

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