ALBERTO ZAYDEN: REVOLUTIONS DON'T COME TO PARADISE
Photo Credit: Kim Grover
A scathing political/comic satire on America's obsession with wealth parallels Fidel Castro's Cuban revolution with the Trump election. Alberto Zayden summons characters from his multi-ethnic family to show how exasperated populations are easily drawn to false prophets. Intertwining anecdotes, poetry and mimicry he conjures a New York journey from the Thompkins Square Park riots, to the world of billionaire celebrities. The show's greatest gift is the ability to tackle a critically important subject while keeping the audience laughing and engaged.
Alberto Zayden is a Cuban/Lebanese, East Village poet born in Havana. His play The Cigarette Exchange, was produced by Synchronicity Space (later the Culture Project). His poetry has appeared in the Caffe Review, EAR Magazine and Live Mag, among others. He has performed extensively in New York, L.A., New Orleans, Miami and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival collaborating with actors, musicians and dance companies. Poet and NY Times dance critic Jack Anderson has called his poetry visionary. He is currently shopping a novel inspired by his family's travels and working with an illustrator on a graphic poem.
