This October Theater Reconstruction Ensemble is participating in the Producers Club at the New Ohio Theatre. We will have three showings (October 4-6) of our latest project: "How To Hamlet or Hamleting Hamlet (oh god not another fucking hamlet)". I will be in this showing and have also collaborated on the creation of the script. It should be a wild adventure!

I'm continuing to puppeteer for Hamid Rahmanian and his short shadow adaptation of the Iranian legend of The Serpent King around NYC. Our next gig will be at BAM this coming Fall.
This 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/
Dead Puppet Society is toiling away on "Laser 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.
Also with Dead Puppet Society I'll be returning to "ARGUS" this time at Lincoln Center! For more info head here: http://family.lincolncenter.org/events/argus
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
