Michele Carlo to Perform FISH OUT OF AGUA as Part of ONE Festival, 4/23 & 26
One of New York City's most esteemed and accomplished storytellers, Michele Carlo, will present an excerpt from her upcoming solo show, "Fish Out Of Agua" as part of the 9th Annual ONE Festival at the 4th Street Theater (83 E. 4th Street) in Manhattan, on Wednesday, April 23 at 8pm and Saturday, April 26, at 2pm. Tickets are $20.00. For additional information, go to: www.theonefestivalnyc.com/
"Fish Out Of Agua," developed in part with playwright/solo performer Peter Michael Marino ("Desperately Seeking The Exit"), is a 30-minute melding of theater, storytelling and performance art adapted from Michele's acclaimed memoir "Fish Out Of Agua: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks," (Citadel/Kensington, 2010), the story of a redheaded Puerto Rican girl growing up in an Italian/Irish neighborhood in The Bronx who dared to dream of being an artist.
"Fish Out Of Agua" sprang from stories Michele first told onstage at The MOTH's StorySLAMS, where she went on to appear in both their GrandSLAM competitions and Mainstage shows. Other recent appearances include the PBS documentary "Latino Americans of NY & NJ," and "Latino USA" on NPR.
"She (Michele) has a unique talent for bringing to life, onstage and in her writing, the many wonderful characters from her life."-- Catherine Burns, artistic director of The MOTH.
"Fish Out Of Agua" was previously workshopped with The Portland Story Theater and The Los Angeles Women's Theater Festival.
Produced by Caicedo Productions Corp. and TTO Entertainment, The ONE Festival is now in its ninth year. Tickets are $20.00 and can be purchased at the door or online via SmartTix: http://www.smarttix.com/show.aspx?showcode=ONE68
