Here is a brief write up about the reading of my play, Black Triangle, at the Visual Arts Collective, by Boise Weekly.
Here is the Toto Puppet I created for the production of The Wizard of Oz at Lawrence Arts Center, in Lawrence, KS.
Here is a video of the puppet in action.
I will be spending the month of February in Garden City, ID, as a writer-in-residence at Surel’s Place.
I will be teaching a workshop titled, Tackling the Ten-Minute Play.
Ten-minute play festivals, produced by many theatre companies, provide an opportunity for playwrights in all stages of their career to share their work with an audience and create community with other theatre artists. In Tackling the Ten-Minute Play we will explore the various components of a strong ten-minute play including: play structure, creating conflict, crafting characters, and developing dialogue. This workshop will also explore tips for editing and refining your final manuscript and navigating the submission process when you are ready to submit your work.
A reading of my dark comedy, The Black Triangle will take place on Feb 22nd at the Visual Arts Collective in a collaboration between Surel’s Place and Alley Repertory Theater’s series “The Age of Women.” Doors open at 7:30pm and the reading will begin at 8pm. This reading is free and open to the public (21-and-over only).
Here are photos from my puppetry class’ performance themed around “Solidarity.” The children studied how solidarity has been explored by other artists, including visual artists and poets, wrote poetry inspired by the theme, designed and constructed puppets, and devised their own production. They performed the work in front of after school and loved ones, as well as, lead a solidarity march with their community.
Cecilia Roberts and I created a giant Mother Earth Puppet and Lady Liberty Puppet for Water Family Day, an activity-filled exploration of water and climate change issues for kids of all ages, at Saint Pauls Chapel in New York City.
