Thank You A big special thank you to the Fringe performers. Your participation is so much

appreciated. You’ve made history! To the wonderful volunteers, you all gave so much and we are deeply thankful. Taking on

a project of any magnitude is

always daunting, but support from so many makes the way so much easier. I would like to acknowledge the support from the Fringe Team who generously volunteered their time: Abel Coelho, Courtney Oyama, Cyrina Hadad-Ralya, Esther Izuo, Jenn Thomas, Noe Tupou, and Brett Botbyl, for jumping in at the last hour - Thank you. To Tim Bostock: thank you for leaping

into it, this was a challenge, and

I thank you for the support and guidance. Cheers!

My Mobster

Awkwardly brave and oddly joyful, My Mobster is the true story of the romance that blossoms between a sheltered young woman and a foreign criminal. Add an hyper-religious mother and Joy’s love-hate relationship with her virginity, and you get a story that leaves you laughing long after the tears are gone.

Michael Wall’s Rhythms of Change

An inspiring, fun-filled adventure in percussion, song, and storytelling, celebrating Spirit and Spiritedness! Live performances are captured and looped,creating rich instrumental and vocal layers. Audience members are “in the band”- clapping, singing, dancing, and offering dreams and visions. Heartfelt, hilarious, sacred and

profane

it’s a rollercoaster of

revelry!

The Set Up

Can you keep, but not tell, time? too much not enough? Where is the &@!# bass player? In ‘Gig Limbo’ two musicians ponder such complexities while tonal interventions open new dimensions in The Set Up.
