About the One-Man Show
Take a truly entertaining and often hilarious journey through Freddy Zental’s life experiences concerning intimacy, sex and love. The show is packed with storytelling, drumming, singing and comedy. All are used in service of demystifying those intimate, personally impacting moments that so often go unexamined or trivialized, like your first exposure to sexual energy, your first orgasm or your first true love.
As Freddy Zental’s personal story unfolds the audience is reminded, “As you listen to my story think about your own.” The show therefore is a playful invitation for us all to reflect on old feelings and fixed ways of being to make room for getting in touch with our dreams, passions and sacred intimate Self.
About the Performing Artist
Freddy Zental Weaver is a performing artist, accomplished percussionist and singer, stand-up comedian and story teller. He has toured the United States performing at playhouses and theatres, yoga studios, conferences, performing arts centers, festivals, colleges and private events. An actor since the age of eight years, he has appeared in Medea with Bea Richards and Maya Angelo, readings with Universal Studios, Black on Black at the University of Hawaii, and The Life and Times of Thomas Paine, San Francisco.
As co-founder and director of TantraNova Institute, Chicago’s leading interpersonal transformational organization since opening in 2001, Freddy Zental wrote this play based on longstanding personal and professional experience in developing sexual enlightenment as it affects fulfillment and creativity in life, love and relationships.
For many the concept of Sexual Enlightenment is completely new. The word Tantra itself is misunderstood as a hedonistic practice in the West unfortunately relating only to the sex act or Tantric Sex. Yet TantraNova and its depiction through the Sexual Enlightenment Show is much more encompassing and understands sexual energy as life force energy. They are one and the same – we wouldn’t exist without it!
Given this background, sexual enlightenment is considered an awareness that allows for conscious cultivation of this creative life force energy. Freddy Zental conveys that it is only when we have come to terms fully with our sexual selves and learn practices of consciousness and focus that we are able to come to sexual enlightenment and reach our full human potential.
Through the drama of storytelling, song and rhythm Freddy Zental’s audiences are guided to a deeper appreciation of connecting with this creative life force energy. The use of multi-media and audience participation generates an experience of tapping into a greater consciousness beyond what’s available in the daily routines of life via the linear left brain.
“Two thumbs up! Five stars! In his one-person play, Zental publicly celebrates sexuality with simpleness, gentleness, compassion, and profoundness. His journey becomes a reflection for our own. The play is theater, comedy, and wisdom teaching all in one. TantraNova Man rocks . . . our soul.”
