Vaudevisuals interview with Deborah Margolin – Dixon Place Benefit Performance!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 29TH, 2020 AT 7:30 PM

What do you get when you cross a nerd comedian with a nerd-averse Mother who is funny as f*ck? You get Deb Margolin’s JUST GIVE ME ONE-HALF HOUR WITH MY MOTHER, a comedy of mourning and retrospection, with a deep bow to the power of jokes to connect a body in the diaspora to the mother country, or to the Mother herself! In addition to the lamentation and yearning, there are jokes told one after the other! These are ACTUAL JOKES! No one tells straight-up jokes anymore

~For Tickets~

Written & Performed by Deb Margolin

Directed by Merri Milwe

Technical Director and Technical Designer: Chayton PabichBackstage

Crew and Advisors: Ginny Mayer & Mark Gaudet

— DC Metro Theatre Arts

I first met Siobhan at a performance in Kensington, Brooklyn. The monthly series was called “Tiny Dangerous Fun” and it was hosted by John Leo and Andy Sapora. Two very funny dudes! Siobhan made an impression on me from her wonderful personality and vulnerbility with the audience. If you are up for a great and unique theater experience I suggest you go this charming young woman in the bathtub!

Here are the remaining dates

WaxFactory’s – #aspellforfainting – Incubator Arts Project – ‘Other Forces 2014’

Presented at Studio 440

Performers and creative team:

Gillian Chadsey

Ivan Talijancic

Shige Moriya / LEIMAY

The program note was as follows:

“Audience members are encouraged to use their mobile phones (turn ringer and flash OFF) to record photos, videos, or sounds and Tweet them using the hashtag #aspellforfainting.

The WaxFactory website statement:

“A brand new ensemble work for a solo performer, a sound artist/DJ and a video artist/VJ, titled#aspellforfainting is an improvisational piece, created anew for each performance by using disparate textual sources (The Seagull, Macbeth, Hamlet, Streetcar Named Desire, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, YouTube instructional videos, etc), a multitude of musical selections and sounds, and over 50 objects as an investigation in the chaos of creation. The performer is given a series of tasks to complete while the DJ/VJ team shifts through a constantly rotating series of textual sources, sound cues, light changes, and props placed in the performers path.”

A revelatory exploration of space and emotions by WaxFactory. Stunning and emotional journey into the heart of the moment.

Here are some images I captured that night.
