Biography Robert Post

Two major influences sparked Post’s
childhood desire to go into show business:
the sight of his Italian grandmother,
Assunta DiMenna, spontaneously dancing
and singing at any family occasion (including
funerals), and the classic vaudeville,
juggling and specialty acts featured on
the Ed Sullivan show.
In 1978, in an obsessive quest to find
a teacher who could help him blend his
love of character work with the magical
techniques of the movement arts, Post
traveled to the woods of Maine to take a
workshop with the visionary theatre artist,
Tony Montanaro. This began the foundation
of Post’s unique creative style and his
longtime artistic collaboration with Tony.
Throughout his career Post has performed
in almost every conceivable setting including
concert halls, street corners, dinner
theaters, prisons, factories, TV commercials,
homeless shelters, festivals,
and with symphony orchestras. He has
created over thirty works for which he
has received numerous awards and fellowships
from such organizations as the
National Endowment for the Arts, the
New York State Council for the Arts, and
the Ohio Arts Council. PBS produced a
documentation of his stage performance
that was shown internationally, winning
the Central Education Network Award for
Best Performance Program. Post is also
an alumnus of the Affiliate Artists program
and has toured his one-man performance
to forty-six US states, Canada, Mexico,
Russia, the Mediterranean and Japan.

and The Nutcracker for BalletMet
Columbus as well as theater productions
