“What We’ve Built” in Hatch’s FireHouse/Water’sEdge at SFIAF in SAN FRANCISCO
May 21-29, 2016, Fort Mason, SF CA
{New site-specific work with the Hatch Performance Collective. As part of the San Francisco International Arts Festival, I’m creating a piece a lively comic solo about trash, gold and earthquakes for the beautiful historic Firehouse building at San Francisco’s Fort Mason. Featuring true tales of the history of Bay Area wealth and an unexpected solution for looming disasters both personal and seismic, this language ritual welcomes audiences into a satirical cosmology of time.

Truest at Ground Floor in BERKELEY
Summer 2016, Berkeley Rep, Berkeley CA

{In Truest, Sam Shepard meets Thelma and Louise when we find two sisters in a kitchen. Smoking guns in hand, they’ve just slain the iconic brothers of fraternal drama True West. As these women pursue their own uniquely twisted American Dream in a landscape of canonical corpses, they dance an intricate psychological duet that leads us through a surreal terrain of wonder, danger, laughter, and yearning. I’ll be working on a new draft of my latest script-in-progress at Berkeley Rep’s Ground Floor program; there will likely be a public reading during the residency, so stay tuned! More info.}
