Marissa Chibas. From Nov 14th through Nov 16th, 2008.In a solo theatrical tour de force, protean performer Marissa Chibas tells an astonishing tale centered on three towering figures in her life: her father, Raul Chibas, who co-wrote the manifesto for the Cuban revolution with Fidel Castro; her uncle, Eddy Chibas, who was the frontrunner for the Cuban presidency in 1951 before committing suicide during a live radio broadcast; and her mother, Dalia Chibas, Miss Cuba runner-up in 1959.
Zigzagging through her own stories and key episodes in the history of her illustrious family, Chibas gives an impassioned, live-wire performance that is propelled by her near-death experience in the Venezuelan Amazon. This production is part of the Cultural Fringes celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Miami Book Fair International.
Performances will take place on November 14th and 15th at 8:00 p.m. and November 15th at 3:00 p.m.
