From the Teton County Public Library:
Across three continents, 10 countries and 45 states, and for over 2 million people, Antonio Sacre has told stories. On Wednesday, Sept. 17, he will take the stage at Teton County Library’s Ordway Auditorium with a truly bilingual performance that bridges diverse cultures with humor and story. Sacre will also be presenting bilingual stories in the schools as part of our month-long Latino Heritage Celebration.
It doesn’t matter whether you speak English, Spanish or both; Sacre’s storytelling artfully interweaves both languages. His fourth book, “My Name is Cool: Stories from a Cuban-Irish-American Storyteller,” draws on his personal history growing up bilingual and bicultural. Born in Boston to a Cuban father and an Irish-American mother, Sacre intertwines the Spanish language, Cuban family, and Irish humor into tales full of laughter, inspiration, tradition, and family. A book signing with books available for purchase will follow his performance.
Sacre is an internationally touring, award-winning performance artist based in Los Angeles. The “Village Voice” calls Sacre “Remarkable . . . a serious artist” and “Backstage” describes Sacre as “powerful, hilariously honest.” His shows have garnered numerous awards, including Critics’ Choices in San Francisco, L.A., New York, and Chicago.
