See this?

Screenshot 2014-06-10 11.10.03See the cover of this program? See the picture of the hairy, chinky Latino screaming, that kind of looks like a caveman, and kind of like a monkey too?

Well, people think that guy is Cuban, Dominican, Jamaican, Brazilian, or Puerto Rican. He isn’t – he’s Nicaraguan – and that Nicaraguan is me – during a performance of my one-man show PET.

The month of May celebrated the one-year anniversary of that show’s premiere. So, I would like to thank everyone that came out to catch all the shows, and/or supported in any way. I would also like to thank the people that came out to see an excerpt of PET the other weekend, as part of the Design District’s new Site-Specific Performance Series.

Ok

I was told by a very famous blogger/publicist (who doesn’t have a blog……or Facebook), that  I should share more of me and my doings with you. So, here.Screenshot 2014-06-09 13.46.17Thanks to all the people that came out to my lecture on Hip Hop culture over at History Miami the other weekend as part of our Flipside Kings residency there this summer. It was great to see people genuinely interested and willing to learn – as well as fun

Ugli

20131210-113312.jpg
I call this piece “Ugli”.

It’s about how the Human populations are using up Earth’s natural resources at such a rapid rate that we will require two planets’ worth of supplies in the next 25 years…And how humans have caused the populations of most species, including mammals and fish, to drop by roughly a third from 1990 to 2013. And how pollution, overfishing and forestry activities have caused severe harm to Earth’s natural environments.

I’m selling it for $13,111,876. If your interested in buying it, contact me at www.rudigoblen.com

Freeze.

20131120-115406.jpg
I’m in a erie area where hands to necks belong to magazines with low batteries waiting to fall, and the dust I own screams from the stomach of “The All” with its wit inside a loosely tied navy knot. Dinosaur teas going bananas over rays of Vietnamese cups of wifi that will only say bye-bye eat good karma in hopes of receiving a green cross at the wall of pandas. While the irony in silicone is that we’ve stumbled more than some in tech, and our goal is far fetched with a bad case of strep throat waiting to be pet with vertigo spells.

With my tongue to concrete, and callus to the brain – I freeze.

What are you doing?

PET Promo

>>GET TICKETS HERE<<

PET is an interactive, one-man dance theatre piece set in a support group meeting for ex-lovers/serial monogamists built from an array of interviews and shared experiences of the broken-hearted. Drawing from a repository of human emotions, fears, hopes, dreams and instincts; while forging a blend of movement, speech and actions to tell its story — PET deals with the complexities of relationships, love, and lack thereof.

Written & Performed by Rudi Goblen
Directed by Michael Yawney
Commissioned & Presented by Miami Light Project

PET will receive it’s world premiere in May 2013 at The Light Box at Goldman Warehouse and was created with the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners.
