06.20.11 Balancing Acts

leave a comment »

The theme for the 2011 Moth members’ show was, “Walk the Line: Stories of Balancing Acts.”  As you might suspect, the stories revolved around major life events which resulted in clarity and change.  The storytellers, whose accomplishments and experiences cover an immense range, included  June Cross (The Secret Daughter), Mark Moffet (a.k.a. Dr. Bug), Richard Price (The Wire, Clockers, The Color of Money), Mishka Shubaly (latest LP –  How to Make a Bad Situation Worse) and Tricia Rose Burt (artist recovering from a corporate career).  Bill Irwin (MacArthur Genius Award winning actor and clown) was the perfect host.  A life changing event, as you may know, often comes with tears, cringing, laughter, chaos, eye-rolling, resolve or perhaps all of these and more.  I’m grateful for the inspiration and wisdom these talented storytellers were willing to impart.
