FIRST FRINGE FESTIVAL for "DIRTY LAUNDRY"
Asheville Fringe Festival, 2023!
"As a proud Queer Americana Peruana, I chose to venture far beyond polite storytelling. . . DIRTY LAUNDRY is a genre-bending performance aiming to unearth gritty topics that are often left buried." Marriage, divorce, dating, and Queer reclamation are unapolegetically disclosed in this irreverent unraveling performance. Fresh iterations continue to be imagined and will be revealed EXCLUSIVELY at
Asheville Fringe Festival!
March 24 + March 26 at The Bebe Theatre

...as well as varied days hiking along the Camino Primitivo and Camino Norte.
"El Camino de Santiago, in English “The Way of Saint James,” is the pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain, where legend has it that the remains of Jesus’s apostle Saint James the Elder lie. The Camino has existed as a Christian pilgrimage for well over 1,000 years, and there is evidence of a pre-Christian route as well. Throughout the medieval period it was one of the three most important Christian pilgrimages undertaken. Indeed, it was only these pilgrimages—to Jerusalem, to Rome, and to Santiago de Compostela—which could result in a plenary indulgence, which frees a person from the penance due for sins." American Pilgrims on the Camino website
Previous travels include: Peru, France, Spain, Germany, Japan, Morocco, Thailand, Costa Rica, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, Portugal, and 25+ US States.
