This December, I dabbled in the art of time travel...

As a member of DAVID CONISON + CO, I worked with a group of fellow artists to create a system of pills that enable time travel. For 2 weeks, we collaborated in devising a system for time travel, hand-made over 1000 pills, built a boutique, and opened up shop to the public for 4 nights.

The piece was presented as part of Immediate Medium's THE FUTURE AT THE END OF THE WORLD. Curated by Andy Horwitz of Culturebot, THE FUTURE... was a group performance event in which a variety of performance groups transformed empty rooms at the James A. Farley post office on 34th Street and created pieces about time, the future, and the end of the world.

You can learn more about the project here and here.

This January, I was the dramaturg for a week-long exploratory, developmental workshop led by director Kim Weild at New Georges' The Room.

The workshop brought together members of the deaf and hearing communities to explore deafhood and larger questions surrounding the need to communicate, how we hear, our connection to the world around us, how vocabulary/grammar work in theatre (and life), and more. It was an illuminating, challenging week of discussion, questioning, and even improv.

The piece is currently in its nascent stages. Stay tuned for updates on how it continues to develop down the road!
