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

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!
