"Solanas is the character that we learn the most about and Ruiz does a spectacular job of making her personable and real. It felt like I had met the radical feminist in the flesh."
"Alessandra Ruiz makes a stronger impression as Valerie Solanas, the radical feminist author who shot and nearly killed Warhol. But the piece doesn’t have room for a fuller picture of Solanas, a fascinating figure in her own right."
Chasing Andy Warhol
Alessandra portrays the roles of Valerie Solanas, Julia Warhola, and Giant Andy Puppeteer.
Chasing Andy Warhol, in partnership with SECRET NYC, Greenwich Village Business Alliance, NoHo BID, TMPL Gym at Astor Place, Von Bar and other area businesses, will transform the East Village into a living pop art extravaganza as we reimagine the life of the most influential artist of the 20th century. This theatrical walking tour production will employ Bated Breath’s unique multi-media style as scenes from Warhol’s life unfold on the streets, behind windows of area businesses, and inside secret locations along the route. Bated Breath will use our unique blend of theatre, dance, film, art, walking tour and puppetry to tell this iconic artist’s story in a whole new way which goes beyond the hype and into the deepest longings of a profoundly important person whose legacy continues to bombard our senses at every turn.
