The fringe meets Festival du Voyageur in this freewheeling, educational work by local performer Robert Malo.

Evidently a veteran of many school performances, Malo plays TiBert, a voyageur who fell asleep by the river for 200 years and awoke to perform songs, tell stories and pass around various pelts to the audience.

This 45-minute piece is more suited to the kids fringe venue. The outdoor Steinkopf Gardens venue is also a pedestrian thoroughfare and has its distractions.

Malo handles it all with a teacher’s patience and knows enough to adapt his performance to his audience according to age and linguistic preference.

— Randall King
