Armenian One-Woman Show ‘Shake The Earth’ to Premiere in LA April 9 and 10



A 2015 New York International Fringe Festival “Best Bet”

LOS ANGELES — New York Writer/Performer Lousine Shamamian is bringing her explosive one-woman show Shake The Earth to Los Angeles for two performances. It had its world premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival in August 2015 and received rave reviews.

Shake The Earth hinges on the tension between Armenian and gay pride. Bolstered by kufta and string cheese, Lousine yearns to be a good Armenian and defender of her ancestors who survived the Genocide. But, as a lesbian, she may be the last person her great grandfather Georgi would want to give the account of his remarkable story of survival. Driven by the 100th anniversary of the Genocide, and the Turkish government’s aggressive denials, Lousine finds the courage to speak.
