FISH OUT OF AGUA
Written and Performed by Michele Carlo
Michele Carlo grew up a double-outlier: a redheaded, freckle-faced Puerto Rican in an Italian/Irish Bronx neighborhood who was too “white” for some of her family…and a mystery to nearly everyone else. By turns heartbreaking and humorous, the personal stories of her search for identity interweave with traditional Puerto Rican folktales and unfold like a runaway subway train.
