Winnipeg’s Andrea von Wichert weaves a personal narrative around suicides and cemeteries, and the bloody, bloody history of Scotland.

Like a historic churchyard in Scotland so layered with the dead that the ground throws up long-buried bones, von Wichert digs up her own skeletons as she sorts out her feelings about the suicides of her father and his girlfriend. While visiting Scotland, she comes across an ad inviting travellers to stay in a teepee in the countryside, and so she goes (wouldn’t you?). Here she meets Torsten, a transplanted German expat with bones and bloodlines of his own to sort through.

Well-written and carefully paced, von Wichert’s compelling hybrid of travelogue, history lesson and confessional is very interesting.

— Wendy Burke

 

From the Fringe program:

Back from taking the UK by storm, Andrea von Wichert is ready to mount a saucy, raw, slightly subversive and definitely ambitious campaign of paperless OVEREXPOSURE.

Multi-disciplinary artist, spoken word performer, award-winning writer, Andrea von Wichert fights the fight against artistic banality with self-revelation and deprecation, plucking out her viscera and displaying them proudly for your edification, and hers.

"A trouble-maker!" - high school vice-principal
