Fish Out Of Agua - Totally True Things: A Socially Conscious Storytelling Show, a live-streaming weekly show focusing on mental health or social issues, presents "Fish Out Of Agua" written and performed by Michele Carlo, a redheaded, freckle-faced Puerto Rican raised in an Italian/Irish section of the Bronx, grew up as a double outsider. Too white for her proud Spanish-speaking relatives and a mystery to her schoolmates, Michele braved a search for identity that was a long, rough-and-tumble-ride. By turns heartbreaking and humorous, she recalls the family calamities, fumblings of growing up and all the people and events who shaped her. From the 'playground battlefield" in the not-so-wholesome summer of'69, to graffiti-filled afternoons and high school race riots in the 70s, to art school in the new wave 80's and her emergence as an artist with a unique and alluring voice, Michele's story is an homage to New York City... an iconically American, unforgettable portrait of growing up. Michele Carlo is a native New Yorker, a Nuyorican, a natural redhead - and an author, storyteller/comedy-adjacent performer who has appeared across the U.S, including on NPR with Latino, USA, the Clearwater Music & Arts Festival, RISK live shows and podcast, PBS' Stories From The Stage, and The Moth's Grand Slams and Mainstage in NYC. Many of Michele's early Moth stories appear in her book Fish Out Of Agua: my life on neither side of the (subway) tracks (Citadel/Kensington) click here

Lessons In Survival- Live Open Rehearsal*: Muhammad Ali/Nikki Giovanni (1971), Joan Baez (1967, 1983), Pete Seeger (2006) and more - Fueled by the urgency of our present moment, The Commissary, a multigenerational collective of more than 40 theatre artists, have come together to reinvestigate the words of trailblazing artists and activists who survived and created in times of revolution in our country. Baldwin. Giovanni. Davis. Lorde. Hansberry. Rustin. Hamer. In Lessons In Survival, a cohort of actors channel historic conversations, interviews and speeches, listening to original broadcasts on an in-ear feed and speaking exactly what they hear. In bringing these words to new life in the present, they ask what these voices can teach us about our country now and the opportunity for true change that stands before us. How might they propel us to look courageously at the effects of systemic racism, to imagine ourselves outside of its prescriptions, and to create, together, a shared future of collective liberation? click here
