Together We Are Making A Poem About Life

It's been an absolute pleasure getting to work with my old grad-school cohort Dean Poyner on this absolutely beautiful play Together We Are Making A Poem About Life which he'll be performing in alongside the inimitable Monica Wyche. Check it out at the newly resurrected FringeNYC starting October 14th, in an emotionally raw, intimate site-specific staging.

No we didn't win, but Jon Levin, Josh Luxenberg, and I had a great time at the 2018 Drama Desk Awards where A Hunger Artist was nominated for best solo performance and best puppetry design!


Pictures from the Parking Garage...

Last week Qubit opened the doors of a Harlem Parking Garage for a one-night-only evening of "21st Century Sound Stories!" Here are some photos from designer Marika Kent of the works by Alec Hall, Aaron Einbond, David Bird, featuring the TAK Ensemble and directed by moi!


21st Century Sound Stories

I'm thrilled to be directing three new works at the intersection of opera and music theater in a parking garage way up in Harlem! This evening (one night only, April 28th) is organized by Qubit, who has recently outfitted this massive industrial warehouse into a performance venue. Definitely worth checking out!

The Crook @ Harvard's Houghton Library

Just returning from a spectacular trip to Cambridge where I was invited to speak at Harvard's Houghton Library regarding their Black Crook collection. The talk was called Reviving and Reimagining The Black Crook. So thankful to have been able to finally examine the Charles M. Barras papers, not to mention the rest of their Crook memorabilia.


A Hunger Artist Returns From Edinburgh

It's been an incredible run for Jon and Josh and Sinking Ship's Hunger Artist over at Zoo Venues in Edinburgh. Check out all those stars! We also walked away with a Summerhall Lustrum Award for the greatest festival moments! So thrilled to be a part of it and excited to keep it going this December when we go to Baltimore's Theater Project.
