Join us for a family-friendly storytelling event with Antonio Rocha.
Antonio Rocha, born and raised in Brazil, presents a unique fusion of verbal narrative and mime that has taken his work to 16 countries across 6 continents. With his tenor voice, realistic sound effects and exquisite moves, he is sure to take you into a journey of a life time. Here in the USA, where he has made his home for the past 28 years, Antonio has performed at prestigious venues such as the National Storytelling Festival, The Smithsonian, The Kennedy Center, The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, The Mesa Performing Arts Center and more.
A former student of Tony Montanaro and Marcel Marceau, Antonio also holds a Summa Cum Laude Theatre BA from the University of Southern Maine. In 2015 Antonio received the Oracle Circle of Excellence Award by NSN (The American National Storytelling Network).
“Most importantly… is his acute awareness of the audience with whom he is working. His stories shift and change to meet them halfway, whoever they are, whatever age they are, whatever mood they bring in the door. He is a master.”
– Mark Lutwak former Educational Director of Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park
