Featured entertainment includes "Anatomy of a Doll", a poetic and dramatic one-woman show written, produced and performed by Terri Muuss, the poetry-inspired musical stylings of An Incandescent Firefly (A.I. Firefly), and a perfect fusion of comedy and poetry from James P. Wagner (Ishwa).
Anatomy of a Doll is a poetic one-woman show that captures the dissociation that often results from the experience of incest and illustrates the connection between childhood sexual abuse and substance abuse. Performed with musical accompaniment. A discussion/Q&A will follow.
Terri Muuss is an actor, poet, teacher, director, and social worker who always looks for new challenges and actively seeks ways to bring together the various passions in her life. She is the writer and performer of the one-woman show Anatomy of a Doll, which she's performed for the past thirteen years at numerous theatres, conferences, high schools and universities throughout New York, New Jersey, Washington DC, and California, as well as at the 2003 Toronto Fringe Festival. She has read her poetry throughout NYC, at the 14th Street Y, Blue Stockings, Makor Theatre, LOUDER Arts and Cornelia Street Café and has been published on-line at Bolts of Silk and JBStillwater. She also has many other theatrical and professional credits that cannot fit in this bio. Currently, Terri serves as the Communications Coordinator for the Bay Shore School District. After 15 years living in New York City, Terri currently lives on Long Island with her beautiful sons, Rainer and Atticus and her amazing husband, Matt.
James P. Wagner (Ishwa) is a performance poet, editor, publisher, comedian, actor and author. He has edited several poetry anthologies including Perspectives: Poetry Concerning Autism and Other Disabilities and is currently working on Rhyme and PUNishment: Comedic Verse.
He serves as president of the Bards Initiative — a local Long Island-based poetry organization of which he is senior founder, and is on the advisory board for the Nassau County Poet Laureate Society.
James also serves as a publishing coach helping authors navigate the ever-changing publishing world of the 21st century.
James’s routine will include performance-based comedic poetry readings with bits of stand-up comedy, intertwined with skits.
A.I. Firefly writes poems and songs and likes to play outside. You can find her poems hiding on the poem blog, 'October Babies' and spreading love in the Feb issue of 'Having A Whiskey Coke With You'. You can find her music glowing at www.wearefireflies.net.
A.I. Firefly will be sharing a series of songs (for voice and guitar/keyboard) spun from her free-verse style poetry. She is musically influenced by a wide range of styles including jazz, blues, punk, folk, and indie rock. Featuring Joseph DeMaso on guitar.
