A rollicking ride through every muscle in the body - and then some!
“Cheers to our musculature’s marvelous drama! Guillermo Perez, Dance Magazine
Quirky, witty, intelligent fun!!!

Namely, Muscles is a one-hour, one-woman, seriously silly play with Guggenheim Fellow, Claire Porter, portraying Dr. Nickie Nom, an Anatomical Surgical Specialist as she gives a reading from her new book of poems, Namely, Muscles. As she reads the forty plus poems, Dr Nom enacts 96 major muscles of the body and then some. Poems include "Psoas, the Tender Bender," "Gluteus to my Ears," "Long in the Head," "Just the Meat," "The Rotator Gang," "Names on Your Nerves," "A Word from Our Tendons" and many more.  Namely, Muscles is of special interest to lovers of anatomy and received the "Overall Excellence Award” from the New York Fringe Festival 2010.
