Enjoy Poetry in Motion, a blend of Antonio Rocha’s award winning mime and storytelling. The evening will be filled with stories from different cultures and mime from his wild imagination. Antonio’s eloquent movements, tenor voice, realistic sound effects and compelling stories will sooth your soul, tickle your funny bone and leave you spellbound. This is a performance you will be talking about for days! For ages 7+.

Antonio Rocha, storyteller, mime and author of a children’s book, began his career in the performing arts in 1985. Rocha’s unique fusion of verbal narrative and mime has received several awards, and he’s been invited to venues such as the National Storytelling Festival, The Kennedy Center, The Graz Festival in Austria, and many more from Canada to Japan in fourteen countries on six continents.
