Through the Fire by Victor Almanzar

Date: Monday, October 21, 2024 | $10
Time: 11:00 AM
Grades: 9-12

A remarkable one-person show that revolves around the captivating life story of Victor Almanzar beginning with a near-death experience that lands him in a Queens, NY hospital during the peak of the COVID pandemic. His life flashes before his eyes: his relatively innocent childhood in the Dominican Republic, his move as a youngster to NYC and the ensuing culture clash which leads him to gang-life and drugs. He struggles with his identity, finds love, and discovers his adulthood in the Marines (serving in Kosovo and Iraq). After a troubling period as a civilian, he finds redemption by committing himself to a life in the Theater.

Through the Fire was developed at the Labyrinth Theatre Company by Actors Studio members Victor Almanzar (writer and performer) and Elizabeth Canavan (director). It is a story of survival and self-forgiveness driven by Almanzar’s original hip-hop music. Funny, shocking, not always polite, but always authentic, the performance is 60-minutes!
