Theatre is an act of rebellion. My work is Queer and prioritizes visibility, physicality and the liberation of knowing everything is inside of you. It reflects an active daily choice to celebrate found family and community and to reject the worst parts of life to imagine a better future. I am excited by material that feels impossible to stage, has a healthy dose of dark comedy, and eschews traditional American Realism. Maximalist pocket universes crafted by bodies on stage, inhabited by complex characters fighting to survive and thrive. I tell stories with expressive minimalism allowing for style to dove tail with emotion and create striking moments of complex beauty and resonance. Breath and the musicality of the body are an active area of exploration and composition for my expression. I seek to activate audience members allowing their imagination to fill in the gaps. There is no wrong way to engage with theatre. My work consciously seeks to engage not just with people who suspend disbelief for two hours but also with analytical problem solvers who want to participate in the think tank of how we achieve the incredible onstage. As a theatre maker I strive to be person first by facilitating rooms that prioritize the individual artists making a show over the final product. Rooms that actively make space to breathe and troubleshoot. Rooms that embrace every voice in the overall conversation about the why and how of our storytelling. Lift each other up, build something vital and change one mind at a time.
