Abdi Warsame, Minneapolis Council Member for Ward 6

First elected in 2013, Abdi Warsame serves on the Minneapolis City Council. He represents Ward 6 which includes much of the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.  Born in Somalia, Warsame is currently the highest level elected Somali-American in the country. We will ask him about his incredible personal story, his views on local politics, and (because it’s a show about Minneapolis) probably about parking.  

Doors at 6:00 - Show at 7:00 - $12/$10 in advance, with student ID, with Fringe button or for seniors. BUY TICKETS HERE!

What is the show?

Our interview based show is a powerful medium for exploring issues and bringing them to life using theater. All of the ideas and challenges brought up in this conversation serve as the inspiration for the improvised scenes to follow. The improvisers tasks are not to make light of the issues or mock the players involved. Instead, scenes make the previous conversation come to life with living, breathing characters in the situations described. It’s a show unlike any other.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
