"Solo performance" – the term used by the Center for Peace through Culture to publicize the premiere of NOTES FROM THE MOROCCAN JOURNALS – denotes texts I write, stage and perform, with theatrical lighting and sometimes a set. That's all they have in common, besides running an hour or more.
Each solo performance has a different style – from poetic story-telling on a simple, realistic set in NOTES FROM THE MOROCCAN JOURNALS to a more journalistic and wacky approach with just a bench and a large map of Manhattan in ART NEW YORK, café-théâtre silliness in QUAND ÇA FAIT MAL (When It Hurts), a single chair and a long swath of fabric in BECAUSE I LOVE YOU SO... and the stripped down cabaret of MEIN HERZ TANZ AUF MEINER ZUNGE, MEINE HÄNDE TANZEN MEIN HERZ. In principle, they can – and have been! – performed in all kinds of places.
