Edna performs 'Altars for my Alters' in SF Fringe!
EXIT Theatre, 156 Eddy, SF, CA, 94102
Edna Mira Raia leads you deep into her bottomless hole of personas, through a proficiency in neo-classic clowning and a dreamy cartoon style that is uniquely hers. From Regina, the Jewish widow to Brian, the vagrant with DID, these characters tell believably intimate stories, hiding their pain behind a pitiful facade while relating to us through comedy. Edna is the Anna Deveare Smith of clowns. Her characters swirl in harmonious confusion as she (a self-declared “anthro-apologist”) makes you love them–maybe even envy them--in spite of their inherent–and oft regrettable–human flaws. Even when these personalities are unrefined like a Diane Arbus photograph, Edna nudges you towards empathy for the ‘tragic clown’ in everyone. Don’t miss her. Don’t miss any of the ‘hers.’
