What am I up to,

YOU ASK?

othello[s]

"The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." (Marcel Proust)

In Othello(s), we seek to explore the way in which events are perceived by playing with the eyes through which we are seeing. In this production, the play of Othello is therefore performed four times, as seen through the lenses of the characters of, respectively, Roderigo, Desdemona, Iago and Emila and Othello. As we see a (perhaps familiar) world through changing eyes, a new understanding is gained of the dissonance felt when our experiences appear disconnected to the experiences of those around us. Thematically, this production reflects how a wide variety of perspectives are causing contemporary familial, political and emotional divides.

Playing through June 15th.

I adore this cast and this company. Telling this story in a new and inventive way feels active, curious, and helps me continually strive for a happy ending. All the elements of theatre that excite and compel me. Playing Emilia in Act One and Desdemona in Act Two, I’ve had the chance to explore these different women and the ways their world instructs their actions.

Check out some reviews.

Did I mention they’re raves!


LiVE COMPOSITION FESTIVAL

A two-day celebration of spontaneously created performance in music, theatre, dance, and multimedia. Multiple acts every night followed by an open jam with performers from all over the world.
Each night will be completely different, with a conductor using a series of hand gestures to live compose each troupe.

This event is in its fifth year, and is put on by my improvisational and soundpainting troupe, Letter of Marque. My opening night is the same date, otherwise I would be there with them in this incredible evening of improvised work. Please attend and have your mind blown!

CLOWNING AROUND

Currently in devising workshops for a clown’s take on “The Seagull.” Clowning in the style of Lecoq, and with training from Shakespeare & Company, The Humanist Project, and Carmen-Maria Mandley has taught me so much about the human scope of emotion, all in the exploration of our universal laugh.

Everything is at stake. And truly, exquisitely silly.

Stay tuned.

Mission

To contest apathy with empathy and education.

To create communication + silence that is infectious with love, curiosity, integrity, and play.

To actively support the communities that have done this, are continuing to do this, and those who wish to.
