After collecting multiple awards at the Hollywood Fringe Festival 2021, Barbara Saba brings “Lies, Anger and Forgiveness” to the Whitefire Theatre Solofest 2022.
When the past wants to be present, one woman finds a surprising gateway to a fresh new future. Saba explores themes from her own life with a universal familiarity. She unfolds a half-hour of raw human experience in her original production of “Lies, Anger and Forgiveness.”
“I decided to give myself a present for my 40th year on this earth. I gave myself the chance to be happy. I gave myself the opportunity to get rid of the weight on my shoulders. I gave myself the silence of a babel where everyone seems to mingle in the tragic solitude of their own language, and finally I feel less lonely. The distance gave me a perspective on the two-dimentional pain that filled up my entire existence. What a Jailer!
Have you ever felt like you weren’t in sync with the events of your life? Like if you were always a little too early or just a little too late to your present? Unable to decide, to play. Like in the worst nightmare, you’re in danger and you feel scared. You try to scream and the voice doesn’t come out from your mouth. No one can hear you.
This is my story, made of violence and lace, of love and resentment, stuck in the wrinkles of a past that doesn’t want to stop being present. I found out that forgiveness it’s the only gateway to the future.”
The show is as direct and honest as Saba herself. Roman-born, she is no newcomer to the stage. An actress, singer, writer and dancer, Saba has performed in a number of short films and live shows, including Milonga Merini: Poesia Tango e Follia where she won the prestigious Premio Internazionale Teatro di Volterra award. A trained vocalist, Barbara has performed in several international music festivals, including Summer Jamboree (Italy) and Viva Las Vegas. Her Rhythm and Blues band B.B. & The Red Cats recently presented their first album “Burning Life.”
