she of the voice

my dear, dear friends,

wanted to let you know about this fabulous new play. as usual i am doing press, producing, and doing a whole lot of cheer leading! She of the Voice will be presented July 7, 8, 9, and 10 as part of the “undergroundzero festival” at PS 122. we’re looking to raise  $2,500 so anything you can contribute would be über-apprecaited.

a bit about the project…

She of the Voice, Eliza Bent’s adaptation of award-winning author Hari Kunrzu’s short story “Magda Mandela,” simmers with video, dance, soundscape + song. A Greek chorus of urbanites dwell alongside the larger-than-life Magda whose constant preaching and outrageous, vigilante antics provide a wealth of gossip—and headaches—for her fellow citizens. Magda may parade around in a lime green thong. She may offer up endless aphorisms and declare herself kin to Nelson Mandela. Yet her calls to arms—though observed—for the most part, remain ignored. Is Magda a wise fool or crazy neighbor? In a fractured, apathetic world, can community exist if no one listens? Though comedic in tone, at the heart of She of the Voice is an exploration of human fellowship.

SHE OF THE VOICE is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions in behalf of SHE OF THE VOICE may be made payable to Fractured Atlas and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. Contributions can be made online at:
