Kiya Heartwood (Stealin Horses, Wishing Chair) lives in Austin, TX and has been performing for more than 30 years. Regarding this latest production Heartwood stated, “To me it's great to sing the stories of the underdogs and outsiders who aren't living on Wall Street bonuses. As Margaret Atwood wrote in The Handmaid's Tale, “We were the people who were not in the papers. We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. We lived in the gaps between the stories. Those are the stories I want to tell.” The Orlando Art Museum is a new venue for this year’s Fringe Festival. The Orlando Art Museum is located at 2416 N Mills Ave, Orlando, FL, 32803, Orlando, FLA
