Edi­tor’s choice

The Georgia Straight - - Fringe Festival -

CATCH THE FEVER We’ve said this be­fore: “The Fringe cir­cuit ex­ists so that we can see artists like Martin Dock­ery.” Now the wide­trav­el­ling, full-body sto­ry­teller ex­traor­di­naire who’s brought you shows like and is, ac­cord­ing to Toronto’s about to present “his most per­sonal and uni­ver­sal tale yet”. flits from sub­jects as di­verse as Burn­ing Man and his grand­fa­ther’s but­ter­fly book to the death of a beloved dog—sto­ries only this Brook­lyn-based mono­logu­ist could weave to­gether into a med­i­ta­tion on mor­tal­ity, all with hu­mour and har­row­ing moments.

Martin Dock­ery: Delir­ium is at the Water­front Theatre from Septem­ber 7 to 10 and Septem­ber 13 and 15 at the Van­cou­ver Fringe Fes­ti­val.
