As Fellini said, "I have invented myself entirely…a childhood, a personality, longings, dreams and memories, all in order to enable me to tell them."
I have a lifetime’s worth of stories to tell and continue to create them. I’m happy to tell for your particular themes or circumstances.
Here are three solo performances that I am currently offering:
Minneapolis performance 2018
The vivid story of an extraordinary man. My search for him after his disappearance is the first part, but the second part is really about the "grief before death" that so many of us experience when faced with dementia and Alzheimer's.
"Loren chose his stories to let us know a man we cannot know without him. It built to a thoughtful, deep ending. I had tears in my eyes."
Bad Brother: Religion and Politics
My most autobiographical work about how I went into a religious order as a Catholic and came out a Buddhist with an FBI file.
“The clarity and suspense of his personal narrative, hitting upon some of the most vexed social and political issues of America in the Sixties, rivets the attention.”
—Jay Harvey, Upstage
An audience “choose your adventure” story with the Baker, the Contessa, the Mapmaker or the Widow, each in search of their destiny in Fata Morgana.
“At the outset of this feat of virtuoso storytelling, Loren Niemi—a modern day Scheherazade—gives his audience a choice of where he should begin his tale in a world that owes something to the Arabian Nights..”
