Catherine Wright - Tough Love
"More please." (Minneapolis Star Tribune). A gypsy vagabond journeys across the continent, over the Pacific, and lands on the big island of Hawai'i to find her Guru. Tough Love is a multi-media immersive performance experience that tells the tale of Eun Mohawk Manini (little bird). The one-woman cabaret highlights the trials of humility and the triumphs of truth and enlightenment through dynamic vignettes of dance, mantra, film, and ukulele.

Catherine Alice Wright (animal enthusiast, villain, entertainer, cave diver) was born in Boston and spent her youth overseas exploring Europe in a tiny trailer with her Irish Catholic family of six. As such, she is forever fearful of tiny spaces and grew into a space-eating lover of art, culture, and adventure! With award winning performance credits in Philadelphia, Miami, Minneapolis, Chicago, Kawaihae Harbor, and Salt Lake City, this proud eccentric is super stoked to check out the Santa Cruz Fringe scene for the first time. A die hard Yogi and ecstatic dancer, she has three degrees from various institutions and has Directed four full-evening theatrical productions which critics have hailed "Part Wiccan ritual, part fairy tale" (Minneapolis Star Tribune), "like a Godiva truffle" (Dance USA), "Brothers Grimm meets Disney on LSD" (Walker Art Center blogspot) and "Pagan-anarcho-punk-feminist Tom Waits/Madonna/David Lynch itch-n-grit aesthetic" (

Tough Love is Wright's fifth directorial debut and will involve audience participation. The Hawai'i Bat Cave Cabaret features collaborative artistic contributions from her homenest in the Mohawk Valley, and from Minneapolis and Hawai'i. Credits include: music by Daniel Salomon of The Mustard Seed Band, Gerald Dischiavo Jr. of The Rusty Doves, DJ Silaz Maximus, film performances by MWPAI students, and steampunk-inspired costumes by Meghan Milligan.
Wright aspires to use interactive art to share love, enlightenment, and Aloha across the globe. for all your info needs
