In February 2016, professional bridge-builder Claudia Perchinelli took the Odyssey stage for a story that weaves together both physical and metaphorical bridges, and ends with a beautifully triumphant crossing. From her Odyssey bio:
Claudia Perchinelli is originally form Brooklyn, NY and came to Tucson to attend UofA and to see if people really have last names that don’t end in a vowel. She wanted to be an astronaut but settled for a civil engineer. She left Tucson after graduating college and lived in 10 different cities including, Boulder, San Francisco and Honolulu before returning 10 years later to open her own bridge design firm called Structural Grace. She is a bridge designer, rock climber, runner and Mom. She believes bridges are intrinsically beautiful and makes every effort to design beautiful structures. Some of her local work includes the Cushing St. Bridge and the Kino Parkway over 22nd St. Overpass.
This episode was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room on February 4th, 2016, and was curated by Jen Nowicki Clark. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit www.odysseystorytelling.com
