Bikeface - August 4 at 7 pm
Playwright: Natalie Frijia
Director: Mandy Roveda
Cast: Clare Blackwood
During the Victorian era bicycle craze, doctors warned women riders they would undoubtedly cultivate bicycle faces: becoming over-exerted, wild-eyed, un-sexed vulgarities, when faced with nothing before them but the wide, open road. A hundred years later, the story of BikeFace takes off. Its a one-woman whirlwind retracing a real-life bicycle adventure across Canada, challenging the outdated gender stereotype. Filled with strange-but-true tales of Wild West proprietors, haunted graveyards, and wanderers with secrets only fit for strangers. BikeFace will tickle your funnybone but, above all else, will ignite your thirst for adventure!
El Diablo of the Cards - August 4 at 9 pm
Brazilian Master of the Cards, Ewerton Martins has thrilled audiences around the world with a unique card magic style that combines improvisation, a clowns foolishness and amazing magic skills! You will never laugh so much while being AMAZED. A previous Hamilton Fringe favourite.
Tickets are $15 for each show, $10 for students. Arts workers can purchase $10 standby tickets at the door.
