I am a director of hybrid work based in NYC. Over the last 25+ years, I have constructed 29 stage works, including 9 original hybrid works, 6 opera-theatre and music-theatre works, 9 reimaginings of novels and short stories and 5 classic plays. I make theatre because it forges community. I seek to create immediate, substantive work that engages the complexity and intensity of today’s culture. I work in a collaborative, process-driven way to fuse different disciplines into a cohesive whole. I recently premiered Assembled Identity with Purva Bedi and Mariana Newhard at HERE and Silent Voices with the Brooklyn Youth Chorus at BAM in the Opera House. Both are available to tour. I am currently developing Looking at You (with Rob Handel and Kamala Sankaram). It will premiere in September 2019. I am Founding Artistic Director of HERE, where I cultivate artists and programs all events for two performance spaces–including 17 OBIE-award winners—for an annual audience of 30,000. I am also Co-Founding Director of the annual city-wide Prototype Festival.
