Super excited to be participating in my first Fringe Festival in Freno, CA called the Rogue Festival. The Rogue is one ofthe largest arts events in California. Fringe Festivals are held all over the world and celebrate the independent artist rather than established arts institutiions. Performances are held in rapid rotation with no Fresno show longer than one hour. The half hour intermission allows folks to see several shows in the course of an evening or weekend at the festival. Fifty artists present their work over two weekends.
My one-woman show is a mash up of stand-up comedy, part history geography lesson/ language lab, and food for thought about the assumptions we make about each other. Although the themes of my play are universal, they especially resonate with folks who work in or care deeply about social justice issues.
Kings River Life, an on-line magazine asked performers to submit write-ups and mine was recently published.
