Geddy Aniksdal's My Life as a Man
April 1 & 2 at 7:30 pm

Lars Vik's Mr. Fumblebody 
April 2 at 2 pm matinee 

About My Life as a Man:
An autobiographical excursion into the story of Geddy Aniksdal’s Norwegian working class origin, which then becomes her working class characters. Her stories in theatre, the reasons why she makes theatre, the meeting with others made possible through the work. A story of finding a room of one’s own.

About Mr. Fumblebody:
The character Mr. Fumblebody is inspired by (and is an homage to) the great silent movie comedians Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin – and early Jaques Tati. In this hilarious show, suitable for ages 5 and up, Mr Vik combines physical slapstick with vivid audience participation and hilarious improvisations. Performed in English.
