After a year-long residency with generous and fantastic puppetry artists, I was part of the Object Movement Puppetry festival at the Center at West Park over Memorial Day weekend. Giveness, a performance with short shadow puppetry films, storytelling, and participation, first started as I interviewed seniors at the Carter Burden/Covello Center in Harlem. I shared a version of this with FEAST last year, and worked to create a more intimate, connected experience in which the performance takes place.
I’m working on Dramaturging Reading Aloud. which LMDA awarded me a Dramaturgy Driven Grant to develop.
