In June, I was at Theatre Squared for the Arkansas New Play Festival, working with Barbara Hammond on Visible from Four States. In May, I was at Alabama Shakespeare Festival’s Southern Writers’ Project, working on Janet Thielke’s Team Player. In February I was part of the Colorado New Play Summit as dramaturg Eric Pfeffinger‘s comedy Human Error.
I’m one of the Object Movement Puppetry residency members with the Center at West Park. We’ll have a sharing mid-December and a festival in the spring. I’ll post more details here as I know them. I’m continuing to work on Giveness, a performance with shadow puppetry films short memories told to me by seniors at the Carter Burden/Covello Center in Harlem. I shared a version of this with FEAST.
LMDA, the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, awarded me their 2017 Dramaturgy Driven Grant for my project Dramaturging Reading Aloud.
It sounds odd to say Life ended, but the performance of Chuck Mee’s play at HERE Arts Center did. I enjoyed working with Joey Rizzolo and Joe Basile and the fantastic cast and crew.
