The Yogamerican Dream is a highly acclaimed, hilarious, seven character parody on the yoga community written and performed by Casey Gates. In the last year she's taken it from a world premiere to sold out houses in Hollywood to a 60 person, sit-on-the-floor yoga studio show in Santa Monica. As a certified yoga instructor and passionate artist, Casey is thrilled for the opportunity to share her hilarious and inspiring stories she's gained working in the whacky yoga world with the audiences of Manhattan- her former Undergrad stomping grounds as well as a hot spot for modern yogis.
After performing in the Hollywood Fringe Festival in June 2011 and being awarded to perform in The Best of The Fringe this August, The Yogamerican Dream has been accepted to perform at The United Solo Show Festival: the world's largest one person show festival held at 42nd Street Theatre Row in New York City on October 22nd, 2011. This will be Casey and her director Jeremy Aluma's New York premiere.
The proposed budget will cover the following fees:
- Airfare for Casey and Jeremy from LA to NY and back
- Entrance into The United Solo Show Festival which includes rent for the theatre space, marketing, and guidance
- Purchasing merchandise and advertising materials
Please read what audiences have said:
-Some shows inform and some shows delight. Some make us laugh, while still others give us pause. And some do it all.
Casey Gates (RYT 500) has written a show that, in sixty minutes, journeys from the quaint to the profound. She delivers an inspired performance that includes seven different characters and tackles nearly every facet of yoga in America today, including its steadfast rise in popularity, its numerous healing properties, and its recent corporate exploitation. Casey transitions seamlessly from one yogi to the next, both male and female, old and young, expert and beginner, and does so with the expertise of a seasoned actor and yoga instructor...and all of it has been tempered adroitly by Jeremy Aluma’s direction. -David Scales
