Performing Arts Story Teller Vaudevisuals Interview

Vaudevisuals Interview with Slash Coleman – Story Teller/Author/Performer – “The Bohemian Love Diaries”

SLASH COLEMAN‘s book has the following opening description:

“Infused with southern charm, this irresistibly weird and wonderful story chronicles Slash Coleman’s upbringing in a warped but warm-hearted household of eccentric artists. Descended from a posse of off-beat immigrants–including a grandfather who danced at the Moulin Rouge–and raised near the capital of the Confederacy during the 1970s and ’80s, young Slash sets out to find true love. Unfortunately, he’s his own worst enemy. Obsessions with Evel Knievel, rock band KISS, and crisscrossing the country to find the girl of his dreams set his quest for happiness on a hapless course.
Hilarious and profound, Coleman slowly comes to terms with his father, a genius sculptor and volatile alcoholic, and his mother, a Holocaust survivor who makes him promise never to reveal that he’s Jewish. A touching portrait emerges of a young artist…”

The Bohemian Love Diaries by Slash Coleman

In this video interview Slash Coleman talks about adapting his oral stories to a book and then back to the stage. The legacy of his family and the inspiration he gets from them to become a story teller.

David Cale – Writer, monologist, songwriter, performance artist.

I first met David Cale in 1982 performing at the Westbeth Theater Center’s Monday night show. He has gone onto create a diverse career for himself  by writing and performing, singing and directing. I wanted to ask him about his work and what he is doing at this time in his life. Here is the video interview as he answers those questions.

“David Cale…is a spellbinder. Fascinating as he is to watch, and exquisite as his verbal imagery can be, it is Cale’s gifts as a storyteller that hold an audience rapt.” Steven Winn/San Francisco Chronicle
