Daily from August 23, 2014 to August 31, 2014

Don't miss An Ode to Dyads, Fishbowl Collective'se explosive new piece, coming to Victoria all the way from Montreal. Chairs are loyal companions, exalted French poets dictate emotion, and narrative is swallowed by metaphysical clowns in this electric tango of love and loss.

"[A] show that you're unlikely to see anywhere else, but at the Fringe. Comedy, tragedy, and love, all expressed through dance without a moment wasted." - BlogTO

RED HERRING at the Victoria Fringe - Victoria

Langham Court Theatre
Victoria, British Columbia
V8V 4J3
Websitehttp://www.victoriafringe.com/shows/v5/
Toll-free
Phone250-590-6291

Daily from August 21, 2014 to August 30, 2014

RED HERRING is a rollicking comedy spoof on the forensic cop show genre. The story revolves around the mysterious and gruesome murder of the lovely Svetlana. Solving the mystery calls for the forensic skills of two investigators from the Smithsonian, a gullible FBI agent, and a dim-witted Washington, DC cop. Along the way, they run afoul of the Russian mafia, a belligerent lesbian model combat helicopter pilot, and a bogus breast implant surgeon. Confounding their investigation are numerous "red herrings" and (unmentionable) exploding body parts. A cast of four well-known local actors together play 11 roles, switching characters, costumes, and accents with remarkable dexterity. For director Chris Moss, it's "the funniest play I've ever directed!" Don't miss it!

Vikings: Journey to New Worlds in IMAX - Victoria

They came from the North and soon the legends would say that they did not know fear. They sailed icy oceans and narrow rivers, striking far inland, without warning, without mercy. However, the truth about the Vikings is far more complex. Much of Europe's traditions, technology and institutions come to us from these fierce men of the North. Shot on location in Iceland, Greenland, and Newfoundland, this breathtaking IMAX film joins the Viking warriors, explorers and settlers as they set out in search of new lands. For the ultimate experience, get a combination Royal BC Museum and IMAX Ticket and immerse yourself in the world of Vikings!
