V.10 - Planetarium 
In this multi-award-winning true odyssey, Dockery treks from a dead-end job in NYC down a dead-end road in Timbuktu, on an ever-more-desperate search for meaning. Negotiating the giddiness, terror and absurdities in travel and love, he's searching for an epiphany. Any Epiphany at all. Best of Fest: Adelaide, Vancouver, London, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Ottawa and Orlando.

Wanderlust

Martin Dockery—Planetarium

Sold out, save for a couple of seats, this well respected artist deserved the crowd. He is a must-see for patrons in the know; and he never  fails to deliver. This reprise was no exception. His ease on stage is evident even before the show starts; as he mingles and chats with the crowd, encouraging them to sign up for his first podcast. Watching him share the story of his backpacking adventure to West Africa is like listening to a wonderful story shared by a friend over beers. His unique observations of his ‘quest to reach Epiphany’ showcase his unique and and very humble sense of humour; evidenced by his ability to laugh at himself. You could imagine yourself in his shoes as he struggles to navigate his way in a strange land where he doesn’t even speak the language and is traveling solo. His crazy adventures range from the delightful to the dangerous. He intersperses his life and his escape from romantic commitment on his ‘incomplete relationship search’ in NYC. He examines his life and adventures with a sense of wonder and a ‘come what may’ attitude. The script is exquisitely written and has been perfected. You can tell he has performed this numerous times by his familiarity and panache with the tale. Come along for the ride. You won’t soon forget it.
