The tour of PANORAMA was a smashing success. We played to sold out houses in Rome, Potenza and Bari, Italy. This unique theater production was a collaboration between La Mama E.T.C in New York City and the Italian theater company MOTUS. The actors played themselves in auditions tapes that unfolded into personal stories of traveling across borders – physical, mental, cultural and political.

The audiences in Italy were so amazing. And so were some of the theaters. The one in Bari was an old opera house.
Here’s a great review in Italian: https://www.alfabeta2.it/2018/11/11/il-panorama-esistenziale-di-motus/

On a travel day, we were gifted a trip to one of the oldest continuous human settlements – Matera. Behind me are paleolithic caves where the earliest humans settled.
It’s great to be back in New York City after three weeks of touring. Have to catch up on much needed rest before taking off to South Africa to shoot Season 2 of WARRIOR.
Bye for now.
Oh yes, happy Holidays! – Perry
