Mary Lou Sanelli remembers eating sausages for lunch when the other kids had peanut butter and jam sandwiches.She had to learn to put away her high heels as an adult when she moved to the Birkenstock-shod town of Port Townsend; she toned down her animated hand gestures and loud voice.
"I always felt different," she said.Sanelli was born in New York's Little Italy to immigrants who fled Italy after WWII.
That feeling of "differentness" is one she shares with many immigrants and first-generation hyphenated-Americans.Sanelli, a poet and dancer, has put her experience into words, both with the book of poems, "The Immigrant's Table," and a companion staged reading.
Sanelli presents "The Immigrant's Table" Jan. 28 at the Jewel Box Theatre in Poulsbo, as a fund-raising event for the theater.
In a recent phone interview from her condo home in Seattle's Belltown, Sanelli confessed she didn't inherit the Italian gene for cooking.
"I don't cook," she said."That skipped a generation."
Sanelli said she wrote the book in 2003 because "you have to know your history and comprehend your past before you can move beyond it.A writer has to go home to make whole her work.People are from a particular place, a somewhere that stays a part of them no matter where they end up."
As with many cultures, Sanelli said food plays a central role in Italian family life.The reading is set in her mother's kitchen, complete with real food.Sanelli walks the stage and recites her poems; Leone cooks and comments, adding spice to each activity.Talk about dinner theater.
Sanelli's clear-eyed, yet loving, awareness of family members' foibles, including her own, provides the reader with a menu that nourishes both body and spirit, a gourmet treat for the imagination."
"It's a staged reading, but it's way beyond the average reading," Sanelli said."It has a lot of theatrics involved.I've been on stage all my life â€" it just felt natural to get out from behind the podium and make it a full body experience."
As a writer Sanelli has published six books of poetry and has written numerous columns for magazines and newspapers.Her commentaries have aired on several public radio stations and she is a regular contributor to Weekday on KUOW.She has a new book coming out next month.She has been a featured poet at the Jewel Box Theatre's monthly poetry reading.
She is also a dancer, and ran a studio in Port Townsend â€" where she also has a home â€" for many years.She is currently training as a dancer with several choreographers and studios in Seattle.
Sanelli paired up with Leone after Leone saw a presentation and approached the author afterward.
"She said I needed to have a real Italian playing the mother," Sanelli recalled.
"She embodies my mother to the point that it's scary," Sanelli said.
Event coordinator Marilyn Miller said former Jewel Box Artistic Director David Speck knew Sanelli as a fellow Port Townsend resident, and recommended the performance as a fund raiser.
