Vanessa Garcia doesn't just put on plays. Through her group The Krane, she dreams up events: a play in a shoe store, for instance. On Saturday, March 21, Garcia and New Light Foundation founder Wendy White are teaming up to present nine original monologues bound by a theme. All have something to do with the body.
Monologus Lingus: A Night of Art, Literature & Theatre Dedicated to the Body turns its focus, piece by piece, on different parts or aspects of bodies. White has written a piece called Hair; Garcia has created one titled Earache. Daniela Diaz contributes Nose,Margaret Cardillo Eyelashes, Paula Kolek Husband's Monologue, Mia Leonin Monologodedo, Maureen Seaton Sex & Petroglyphs, Meredith Danton Bonnie & Clyde and Megan Roth Harry on the Line.
For $12, you can see nine world premiere monologues, drink wine at the post-show reception and bid on art at an auction to benefit the two arts groups. It all takes place at 8 p.m. at the New Light Studio/Gallery, 226 Basin Dr., Lauderdale by the Sea.
