Things I love: The gorgeous light, the fascinating sacred space as it unfolds, his strong floating, heavy falling, the rip on his thigh, the focus, the feeling, the way he turns, the way he runs to the corner full out you think he’ll tear through the wall, the way he might leap so high he’ll be on the balcony. The moments between incidental and artistic gestures, technical and symbol, high and low.
Two fabulous bits of news for this fall:
I am a Huntington Playwriting Fellow at the Huntington Theatre Company! Check out the Boston Globe article HERE.
I am a core member of Project: Project and we are hard at work making our third theatrical experience, and it’s going to be a big magical ride at the Somerville Armory in February. We are currently raising funds for The Shiver Project over at IndieGoGo – check out our VIDEO to catch a glimpse of what we are creating!
I spent a weekend in Vermont recently, working with young writers who were hungry to try new things. Their pens were constantly poised, their voices spoke out clear and strong from circles of eager ears. Their energy, diligence and openness will be with me, living and breathing in the crisp spring morning of my mind. And it was very cool indeed to hang out with some fellow writers of other genres. Big thanks to the fine folks at the Champlain College Young Writers’ Conference for inviting me along for the wild rumpus.
