I am the Creator and co-Director of this brand new Play !Upcoming Play 50 Ways.. to perform at Capital Fringe July 18- 28th- for more details follow link – 50Waysplay.com
50 Ways… is a performance of fifty brief scenes of people leaving their loves, inspired by Paul Simon’s 1974 song, “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.” This tour-de force explores the possible ways one choose to leave gracefully, or not. Fourteen different writers have written 50 mini-scenes. Their stories explore the varied ways we find to move on. Some will be familiar, some bizarre, some hilarious, and some tragic, but all ultimately connecting us to an ability to seek what we need and not settle for less. An ensemble cast of six actors inhabit all of the roles.
How did you leave your last lover? These are your stories. Come see your story up on stage.
Traveled to Scotland for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Lived and worked with Elyssa Vulpes.
It was an incredible experience to exchange with artists from all over the world.
Saw amazing work and expanded my artistic perspective. I recommend this festival to everyone.
Front Line was a one woman show with songs written by Elyssa Vulpes and Life of the Party was a three woman interactive party play with projections.
Today I am going to a planning meeting for a fun project- The idea is about dressing up as famous women in theater and going to plays and theater related events in character to raise awareness and ideally the presence of women working in theater.
Check out this link and if you want to participate in anyway please let me know.
Here is a clip of the Picasso Project- I want to develop it into
Enter- art- ment (working title)- Will be a play/movement piece about activating and inhabiting fine art. Using paintings by modern and contemporary artists as storyboards we will create a series of scenes. The scenes will intertwine opening up meaning and the permission of diverse interpretation for performance company and the audience. Each individual scene explores excerpts from an artist’s body of work and is sculpted by the rhythm, visual world, and energy of the artist’s work.
When first starting to explore this idea with Picasso’s Blue Period, I was amazed by the depth of plot and visual meaning that could be mined by physically exploring the painting. Now I’d like to try with a variety of artists such as Goya, Toulouse Lautrec, Georgia O’Keeffe, Andy Warhol, and Salvador Dali. Any suggestions of artists would be fantastic.
The project will conclude with a scripted performance piece lasting 50-55 min with 6 performers.
I want to make a piece that can perform locally and tour. The tour performance will include an interactive audience workshop, so they can experience inhabiting paintings too. I can see this piece performing at museums and performing arts centers around the country and the world. It expands definitions and is a playful way to encourage engaging in Art.
I invite interested guests to suggest artists to research and explore.
