Netherlands Magician Fritz Alkemade Invites You to Go Dutch

Netherlands Magician Fritz Alkemade Invites You to ‘Go Dutch’


WELLINGTON, 9 July 2014 ­ The Netherlands has a long­standing tradition in magic, and that tradition continues with Fritz Alkemade, who brings his award­winning one­man show Let’s Go Dutch to Wellington’s Fringe Bar for one night, 23 July 2014.

After performing across Europe and North America, Alkemade comes to the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. Fresh from performances in Australia, the Wellington Magic Club is proud to bring Fritz to Wellington for this one­off performance.

Let’s Go Dutch has appeared at the Edinburgh Magic Festival and MagicArtFest (Romania) in 2013, and the Melbourne Magic Festival in 2014.

“Everyone knows what ‘going Dutch’ means: The sharing of the bill in a restaurant,” Alkemade says, “I share emotions with the audience, but not everything; the magic has to stay in it, of course.”

Based in Amsterdam, Fritz “with a Z” Alkemade is a multi­award­winning magician who has performed all over the world, with sold out shows in England, the Netherlands, Canada, Romania, Scotland, and the world­famous Magic Castle in Hollywood.

Let’s Go Dutch will be hosted by the Wellington Magic Club, which was formed in 2012 to encourage the pursuit and appreciation, of magic as a performing art. The Club is open to all those with an interest in magic, regardless of age or experience. Membership comes from all around the Wellington region.

Let’s Go Dutch is at the Fringe Bar in Wellington for one night, 23 July 2014 at 7.30pm. Tickets cost $20, and are available through http://www.eventfinder.co.nz/.
