Sam Shaber: Life, Death & Duran Duran
Co-written and directed by Fringe First winner
Life has three guarantees: you're born, you die and if your name is Rio, you dance on the sand. New York indie rocker Sam Shaber was born hungry like the wolf for rock stardom. But what if you never get to join the band? Maybe you grow up to sing about life and death instead.
Sam Shaber tells personal stories of adolescent dreams and lost loved ones, with a little Telecastering in between, in this hour-long, multimedia, musical storytelling show. Each moment of loss is balanced with a vignette of Shaber as her obsessive, pre-teen, Durannie self; piercing her own ear with a push pin and declaring herself a future worldwide rock star. In the end, our loved ones become a part of us forever – this is what keeps us dancing on the sand.
