"Tales By The Sea"The Home Concert, Sept. 7
August 22, 2013 -
MALIBU, CA"Tales By The Sea", storytelling for grownups, explores the theme Waiting in its summer concert.
Waiting is endemic to modern times, be it in a traffic jam or a line at a bank, and also in our personal lives, those times when we are expecting something to happen, watching out for it, wanting it, observes Ann Buxie, host of the series. Maybe its the other foot to fall, who knows. How do we deal with it?
Eight storytellers, including three Malibu residents, respond with personal stories.
Nolan Pearson, a Malibuite and high school student, has been acting since the age of six and writing poetry and spoken word since he was thirteen. He cites his older brother as the first great author to impress him, as well as Andrea Gibson and Kurt Vonnegut.
Susie Duff has performed on Broadway, in regional theater, on radio, in television and in feature films and for over 35 years has been a proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA. Susie is into her second decade of directing Locked Up In Malibu, the award-winning improv troupe that performs throughout Los Angeles and is comprised of 14- to 18-year-old locked-up angels who live behind the razor wires of the Los Angeles County Probation Camps.
Brad Delany, a Malibu resident raised in northern Colorado and South Dakota, peeks through the warp and woof between ever-changing nature and society. He recounts Constructs, a strange, taut tale of life witnessed on the Great Plains at the beginning of winter.
Carlos Kotkin, ten-time Moth storyslam winner, featured on KCRWs UnFictional and the podcast Risk, returns with D-Day.
Janice Kamenir-Reznik, President and Co-founder (with Rabbi Harold Schulweis) of Jewish World Watch, Los Angeles County Commissioner and environmental real estate attorney, gives us Holding it Close to the Mat, a story from a refugee camp in Africa related by Lisa Cirincione, a television, film and stage actress who has performed throughout Los Angeles and in New York, London, Scotland and Italy.
Cirincione is currently starring in Arthur Millers A View from the Bridge at the Pacific Resident Theatre.
Monica Piper, Emmy Award-winning comedy writer and stand-up comic nominated by the American Comedy Awards as one of the top female comedians in the country, brings us Promises to Keep.
Jill Demby Guest, award-winning writer/producer, studio executive, mother, poet, documentarian, and storyteller tells Surviving Big Brother.
And, Wayne Cotter, nominated Best Standup Comedian at the American Comedy Awards, electrical engineer, host of the Discovery series Amazing America, and favorite guest of Jay Leno and David Letterman, delivers his take on waiting!
Each teller brings the activity of waiting to light so that we may consider it and humor it from a different perspective, notes Buxie. It is always my hope that the stories are entertaining as well as provocative.
Doors open at 7 p.m. on Saturday, September 7, mulled cider will be served. Admission to the home concert is without charge. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
