It’s a beautiful thing to do what you love to do for a living
But when you get to do it with the people you love – and the people you love to do it with – well that’s even better
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us this weekend.
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.

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.Thanks 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
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.
Pour out my lifeline’s wine
Here’s a toast to the ghost that told me that it was all inside my life’s mind
Bang your head against the sky and you can own that
Everything else is just noise, and you can coin that
Turn on, tune in, drop out – do what you want homie
But I’ll still hustle for supper, fuck if the world knows me
Who is this?
The same cat that doesn’t even have a pen to write up a wish list
I’m a creature of the wind, an angel with a blindfold
Shine like the moon on the water, plus my mind’s gone
Life’s a ride, grip to her rails
Write your vows on a rug and pin them on her coattails
Say happy trails, to say the least
Reach now, or forever hold your grief
I’m just a piece of the puzzle, muzzled with puddle that I struggle with
More like an ocean of emotions, still I love this shit
