"Stretch Marks": A One-Women Show About Stretching Your Identity To Become A Mom

This Saturday, Nov. 20th Angela Kariotis will perform her one night, one-women show called  “Stretch Marks". This off Broadway performance is part of the United Solo Theater Festival at the Studio Theatre in New York. Below are some of her quotes about the play and it's personal significance:

 

Stretch Marks


Where and when: The Studio Theatre at Theatre Row, 410 42nd St., New York, Nov. 20 at 3:30 p.m.

How much:$18. Call (212) 239-6200 or visit unitedsolo.org

 

Its subtitle is “+=!?” — which is texting talk that loosely translates as “a positive pregnancy test equals shock and confusion.” With a nod to her hip-hop roots, the show’s advertising promises to “remix a fetal heartbeat and bust an amniotic flow.”

She’s quick to say that it’s not a “mommy play,” and she has been pleased that audiences have seen far broader themes in it.

“Everybody says it’s about life — or making a decision that’s going to change your life,” she said.

It's far-reaching, tackling issues of birth, heredity, culture and identity.

And all of it punctuated with hip-hop’s trademarks of an eclectic sound track and a non-stop athleticism.

She imitates the journey of a sperm, likening its persistence to that of a New York City bicycle messenger. She twists her body to resemble a strand of DNA, or an ultrasound photo of a fetus.

Dressed in leather pants and a Keith Haring T-shirt, she quotes Plato. Sometimes she’s the mother. Sometimes she’s the baby. When she talks of the generational inheritance of physical traits, she says, “She/I looks just like her/my mother.”

“Who I was in the past was no longer existing. I had a new identity as a parent,” she said over a recent lunch at her husband’s restaurant, PK’s, in downtown Woodbridge, where the couple lives. “I had to figure out: How can I be a writer and a parent? How can I be a mother and still be a working, viable artist? There aren’t a lot of examples of artist-mothers out there.”

And fewer yet of hip-hop artist-mothers.

“Stretch Marks” represents her resolution of the challenge of stretching her identity to accommodate her daughter — proof positive that it could be done.

“I had this life I had to get back to,” she said. “And bring my new one into it.” READ MORE HERE.
