I'm looking forward to getting to work on a piece commissioned for the High Line and spearheaded by Kim Weild and Other Voices. I'll be collaborating with a group of hearing and non hearing actors as a puppeteer and puppet maker. It's going to be exciting to see what we can make together. The performance will take place on April 23rd at 2:30 PM on the High Line.
After a very successful run of "Rhinbecca, NY" I'll be joining Theater Reconstruction Ensemble in beginning to workshop the company's next show "How To Hamlet". I'm also honored to be taking on a position as associate artist for the company. Here's top the continued growth and evolution of the company. If you missed "Rhinbecca, NY" here's some really wonderful reviews: New York Theatre Review, CultureBot, Theatre is Easy
I'll be participating in several performances of Hamid Rahmanian's short shadow adaptation of the Iranian legend of The Serpent King. We'll be performing in Park Slope and later at the University of Connecticut.
Dead Puppet Society is toiling away on "Lazer Beak Man". We had a such a wonderful workshop in November at the New Vic and I can't wait to jump into rehearsals later this year. Click HERE for some pictures of the process.
I have the honor of advising a fourth year project at my Alma Mater NYU. The piece is a fun dark comedy about a bird family who struggles with what it means to be a bird in the midst of their first encounter with a different form of consciousness: a human. It's going to be fun and nostalgic to help my advisee make her show a reality.
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 just 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
