Local Cleveland performance artist Barry St. Jose Barry has been wowing audiences with a new show that he promises will really push the envelope of performance artist presentations.

"It's a show about a manila envelope, a man, and how he confronts an ever increasingly alienating world. He wants to shout out 'I'm a human being, not a number."

St. Jose Barry spends a large portion of the show pushing a large manilla envelope across the stage with his genitals. As the actor puts it "Man, that's a big envelope. It's at least a foot and a half wide. You won't see an envelope that big at your local mainstream theatres, baby! They don't have the guts to use an envelope like that."

The actor was last seen in an adaptation of Macbeth that was performed with the actors dressed like vegetables. Playing Macduff as an artichoke, St. Jose Barry received good reviews from "The Cleveland Insider" and "Grocer's Weekly."

Referring to his current show, St. Jose Barry said "I was going to do something safe, like smear myself with butter and ram my head into a truck tire, but this really says what I want it to say. I think an artist has to take chances, like when I did that one man show where I played a variety of foods made with wheat."

The performance can be seen at "The Open Space Gallery" which is just outside the rest rooms at the Kroeger Mall.
