Storyteller/mime travels to perform at Super Saturday

Published 10:16am Friday, March 1, 2013

If you have ever been in the presence of a master storyteller . . . or master mime . . . or master actor, then you know how you can get wrapped up and transported by the brilliance of his or her performance. At Super Saturday March 16, with Antonio Rocha, you get all three in one superb package.

Rocha’s (Brazilian, so pronounced “Ha’sha”) performances delight the smallest child to the very oldest adult. Routinely showered with superlatives, he is hailed as a warm stage presence, tremendous talent, magical, touching, delightful, tender and fierce, serious and hilarious as the stories demand.

With a minimum of props, Rocha creates worlds for us to visit in our mind’s eye, worlds that become quite real and exciting to share.

Writes one critic, “He uses every tool at his disposal – his face, his voice, his body — in service of the tale to be told.”

Trained by Marcel Marceau and other movement greats, Antonio Rocha will perform at the Congregational Church at 9:30 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
