BIG NEWS: I have a website now. You're currently on it. Hurrah!
This (the "News" page) is the place where I'll be keeping whoever may be interested updated about everything that I'm doing, artistically and professionally. (That's the plan, anyway...)
So: two major changes happened this summer, and I've got my hands in a whole bunch of projects.
First, I graduated in June from the Pig Iron School for Advanced Performance Training. The two years I spent there were formative to me in ways I'm only beginning to be able to process. It's totally strange not to be spending 40 hours a week making theatre, and I can only hope that I will be that busy again soon (it's looking pretty good). The last two weeks of the program alone yielded 4.5 hours of new ensemble based theatre work -- let me know if you'd like to see what we made (just email me about the final showing videos and I'll give you the password).
And by the way, now is your last chance to apply to be a part of the APT class of 2015. I can't recommend the program highly enough and am totally happy to talk to anyone about the opportunity.
Second, I took the opportunity of a busy summer to leave the restaurant industry for the first time since I was 19, which feels really great. I'm transitioning into full time-freelancing, mostly as a video editor and videographer (please refer anyone and everyone in the world to this page), but also as a tutor, circus facilities intern, reviewer of new translations of Greek plays... many things.
Theatrically, I've got a whole bunch of things going on -- I'm performing in Pig Iron's Pay Up! as part of the FringeArts Festival in September, and in "Hannah" at HellaFresh Theatre in Kensington in October. Maybe most excitingly, BEFFA, the new physical theatre collective I'm stoked and honored to be a founding member of, is going on residency to Sawyer Farm in Worthington, MA, for a week and a half of developing our show (slated for January), working on the farm, teaching workshops, and doing a works-in-progress showing. I'm also pretty sure I get to stay in a tent the whole time, which is ultra-ultra. Stay tuned for information about a Philly works-in-progress as well -- this is our home, and we want your feedback!
Besides those three most immediate ventures, many other things are happening on the back-burner and I'll be sure to update when things become clearer.
More soon, and thanks for reading!
