Bodies at play

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.

Tom Colucci - Actor 1 - Monologus LingusMonologus 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.
