Two incredible NYC solo performers, Victoria Libertore and Sacha Yanow will be presenting new works at Mono a Mono's inaugural show at the venerable Bowery Poetry Club on Monday October 27, 6:30pm! Called a “local comic vet” by Time Out New York and known for the "sheer mind-bending originality" (Dfdanse) of her work, Victoria Libertore has traversed cabaret, autobiographical and historical portrayals in her 17 years of writing and performing theater. Sacha Yanow, a writer/performer and actor whose work has been called “a fortified example of how much can be achieved onstage with a single body” by Velvet Park, has performed her original work at Dixon Place, BAX, and The Kitchen.
Mono a Mono is a solo performance salon where two provocative solo performances with interweaving social themes are performed back to back, in dialogue with each other. Afterwards, the audience is invited into the conversation in a guided discussion with the artists about the themes and issues illuminated by the performances.
Tickets are $14 at the door, $10 students with ID.
Mono a Mono, part of the Creative Sparks series at Bowery Arts + Science, is hosted and curated by Nancy Kelly.
