This week’s teller in residence: Antonio Rocha
The International Storytelling Center is pleased to welcome Antonio Rocha from Maine as this week’s teller in residence.
Antonio Rocha, a native of Brazil, presents a unique fusion of verbal narrative and mime that he’s shared in sixteen countries across six continents. Featuring a tenor voice, realistic sound effects and exquisite moves, his repertoire includes stories of his homeland, age-appropriate folktales, exquisite mime illusions and some hilarious characters in outrageous situations. A former mime student of Tony Montanaro and Marcel Marceau, Rocha is a recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award.
“Most importantly . . . is his acute awareness of the audience with whom he is working. His stories shift and change to meet them halfway, whoever they are, whatever age they are, whatever mood they bring in the door. He is a master.” – Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
Rocha will appear in matinee performances at 2 p.m., daily, Tuesday, October 24th through Saturday, October 28th. Reservations are recommended as seating is limited. For reservations call (800) 952-8392 or (423) 913-1276.
