A Slave Ship called Malaga -
The Malaga was a 183 ton brig built in Brunswick, Maine by Joseph Badger in 1832. The ship eventually found itself a part of the already Illegal Transatlantic slave trade. The Malaga Ship Story is a tour de force performance. Using his entire body and voice, Antonio sings, narrates, and mimes his way through this poetically toned historical tale told from the perspective of the ship. The story vividly explores the reality and impact of the slave trade then and now through Antonio’s relationships to Maine and Brazil.

Chicken and Crocodile
“Antonio Rocha is a warm, compassionate channeler of important stories who can touch any audience. His stories are meaningful and resonant. He is tender and fierce. He uses every tool at his disposal — his face, his voice, his body — in service of the tale to be told. Most importantly, to me, is his acute awareness of the audience with whom he is working. His stories shift and change to meet them halfway, whoever they are, whatever age they are, whatever mood they bring in the door. He is a master.”
