Glendale Arts is presenting its inaugural Solo Performance Festival consisting of three nights of performances featuring Los Angeles-based artists Ernie Silva, Ruthy Otero and Eternal Mind.
The shows will be held at Antaeus Theatre in Glendale from Nov. 3-5. Tickets for each performance start at $25 for general admission seating. Reserved section tickets (with general admission seating within the section) are $35. A $75 VIP ticket includes reserved seats in the front row and a swag bag. Special $25 Enlighten tickets for deserving individuals (age 17+) who would otherwise not be able to attend are also available for purchase.
“Nobody Knows my Name,” featuring Eternal Mind, with an introduction from Ernie Silva and Ruthy Otero, will run at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3. All the fire-starting elements of today’s world make “Nobody Knows my Name” the funny, profound, and reflective story so many love, cheer, and crave in this day and age, Glendale Arts said.
Friday, Nov. 4, at 8 p.m. — “Dancing With My Demons,” featuring Otero, with an introduction from Ernie Silva and Eternal Mind, will run at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4. A 60-minute comedy that wrestles with the most loathsome “F word” — fear — through storytelling, physical comedy and disco music, “Dancing With My Demons” holds up a mirror to the painfully funny ways we either move through fear, or let it keep us stuck.
“Heavy” featuring Ernie Silva, with an introduction from Otero and Eternal Mind, runs at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5. A story about a Brooklyn kid from the projects who ventures into the life written about in books like Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road,” the hip-hop theater “Heavy” is a one-man show where the lead, a slim-built Puerto Rican man with an afro, plays everything from classical guitar to 17 different characters.
Antaeus Theatre is located at 110 E. Broadway. Full details and tickets are available on Eventbrite at eventbrite.com/e/solo-performance-festival-presented-by-glendale-arts-tickets-410898557647.
