Book, Music, and Lyrics by Michelle "Micha" J. Rodriguez '12
Directed by Mei Ann Teo

What would you do if you were gifted a succulent plant that bursts into flames, speaks to you, and calls you to be a leader? Presencia is a devastatingly funny millennial musical that reinvents the Moses story for women of color thrust into positions of power, told with Bible-fan-fiction vibes, varying degrees of reverence and satire, and a vibrant anthemic musical score. Joined by her squad, Presencia experiences the pitfalls of modern tech and reaches towards true connection on the search for her own Promised Land. Expect miracles, magic, divine feminine energy, and the healing power of presence and intuition in this ultimately joyous new musical. The secret is in her name...

Michelle J. Rodriguez - composer, lyricist, bookwriter and actor in the lead role of Presencia Michelle J. "Micha" Rodriguez (she/her) writes and performs in the worlds of music and theater. Raised in the Pacific Northwest and Kentucky by Puerto Rican parents, Michelle's work explores kids-of-immigrants stories, divinity, queerness, intuition, joy-as-resistance, healing and spaces in-between. Michelle is the winner of the 2022 Helen Merrill Award for playwriting and received a 2022 grant from NYC Women's Fund for Media, Music and Theater. Musicals in development include PRESENCIA (composer/lyricist/bookwriter/performer), which was most recently developed with a residency at BAM and a concert at Lincoln Center's Summer for the City, HOMBRES (composer/lyricist) at Portland Center Stage with William Carlos Angulo and Isaac Gomez, RAIMUNDA (composer/lyricist) with Noelle Vinas, which was developed through Ars Nova's Van Lier Fellowship and Maker's Lab and at NYSAF, and LIVES IN LIMBO (lyricist) based on the book by Ricardo Gonzalez. Her music project MICHA became a finalist for NPR's 2018 Tiny Desk Contest with her song "Nena Nena Nena," praised for a "bilingual set spanning laid-back southern soul and Latin pop flare" (NPR). Micha lives in Brooklyn, NY and when she isn't writing music she enjoys surfing, reading and designing objects. BA Williams College.
