My aesthetic is what I would term:

         

            Shock

                    &

                    Awwww

If we are to stay alive, theatre has to be FUN (otherwise, why are we doing it?)

I believe in combining:

   

arresting, bold staging

                             &

                subtle, vulnerable acting             

Major influences include:

  • JoAnne Akalaitis

  • Antonin Artaud

  • Anne Bogart

  • Jerzy Grotowski

  • Robert LePage

  • The Neo-Futurists

I am interested in staging stories about:

  • Fakes, frauds, and assorted hucksters

  • American religious movements

  • The fetishization of "True Crime"

  • gallows humor versus tasteless jokes
