Abababa Road Tour -- ASL Storytelling
Fri Aug 27 7pm
Austin Community College, Eastview Campus, Multipurpose Room 8500, 3401 Webberville Rd, Austin TX 78702

Since 2004, Alan R. Abarbanell has toured the United States with his critically acclaimed, one-man show, "The Abababa Road Tour" chronicling his experiences growing up hearing in a Deaf family. ABABABA--a name given to him by a friend who could not pronounce Abarbanell--is a proud CODA (Child of Deaf Adults). Alan wrote this show as a loving tribute to his Deaf heritage and CODA family. Each performance is dedicated to Alan's parents Joe and Yetta Abarbanell, whom he credits with his sense of humor, creativity and love for his community.

Abababa takes his audiences on a rollercoaster ride of emotion; first pulling them through the hilarious rush and shocking twists of his youth, then plunging them into the tragedy and loss that followed, only to hurl them upwards towards uncontrollable laughter once again! With the simple wave of a hand, Abababa renders each audience exhausted from gales of laughter and torrents of tears by evening's end.

All Proceeds go to Project N.A.D.I.N.E. to help continue our advocacy efforts and to start new programs that will serve the Deaf community!
