Roberta Murdock began her singing career at the age of fourteen, singing in Japan on an Air Force base. Her plan was to attend Julliard School of Music. Life got in the way: love, children. She returned to her passion in her sixties, making her first musical appearance in Jovelyn Richards’ last play ‘Mz. Pats House’ at La Peña Cultural Center in Berkeley, California.
Tim Fisher and Roberta Murdock share stories from and about their performance piece, “Evidence of Love,” at La Pena Cultural Center, premiering February 7, 2018. Hosted by Jovelyn Richards.
Evidence of Love brings together a diverse group of people living within the intersection of oppression: women experiencing invisibility within the healthcare system, sex workers, people with disabilities, LGBTQ, working class and economically challenged people. This group of 7 performers take center stage with their real stories of love during systemic distress.
With his piece Her, My Love, Tim Fisher is marking his return to the stage after a lengthy hiatus. A relative newcomer to the Bay Area, following his escape from metro New York City, he is thrilled by the opportunity to share his insights and life experiences in Jovelyn Richards’ curated evening, EVIDENCE OF LOVE. His prior stage experience includes dance and theater performances in NYC and his co-founding of Altiloria Arts Alliance through which he performed in and produced evenings of theatrical stage presentations.
