This October Theater Reconstruction Ensemble had the pleasure of participating in the Producers Club at the New Ohio Theatre and sharing a bit or our latest project: "How To Hamlet or Hamleting Hamlet". I have the privilege of co writing the show with John Kuszynowski. The show will premiere at HERE Arts Center in March! Head to www.PledgeTRE.org for more info about the show.
I recently joined up with Handspring Puppet Company to perform "Il Ritorno D'Ulisse" in the White Light Festival at Lincoln Center. The show went very well. Next up we'll perform the show in Potsdam, Germany in June 2017.

I'm continuing to puppeteer for Hamid Rahmanian and his short shadow adaptation of the Iranian legend of The Serpent King around NYC. Our latest gig was at BAM for groups of very excited kids. Looking forward to performing it more in the future!
Last summer I spent three weeks working with The Mettawee River Theatre Company on their newest show, "Before the Sun and Moon" up in Salem, NY. For forty years Mettawee and it's founder Ralph Lee have been making work using a similar model. This year they're switching things up and I've joined their ranks as Ralph's assistant director. We had a great time making the show and we'll be continuing to work on the show during the coming year! For more about the company head here: http://mettawee.org/wordpress/

I'm continuing to teach at Special Citizens Future Unlimited with Shadow Box Theatre Company. SCFU is a center for adults and youth with autism. So far we've had a great time making shadow puppets, sock puppets, bag puppets and more!
I had the opportunity to teach five more classes with the first years at NYU Tisch's Experimental Theatre Wing. We worked on more puppetry skills and made giant puppet monsters!
I recently had the privilege of collaborating with Martha Gelnaw Consulting on workshop for non theatrical workers using Bunraku puppets as a means to explore our relationship with team building and collaboration in the workplace. We had a great group of bankers dive in and challenge themselves. I'm looking forward to developing the course even further. Check out Martha's work here: http://www.presence-impact.com
