I am a director, artist, actor, writer, poet, prankster, human.
My work is a survival strategy
A coping mechanism
I pick and choose from my kit whichever tools seems most necessary for each project.
I make plays, performances, installations, events, essays, videos, and interventions.
We gather in the theater
A space of unique vitality.
Everything is alive
If you look closely enough.
We look, together.
We stare down the end of the world together
Clear-eyed. Holding hands
Bringing as much love into the world as possible.
It’s nice to meet you.
