It's been a busy six weeks or so since my last post! I participated in two new play readings at HERE Arts Center for Colt Coeur's annual Parity Plays Festival:
- Flee by Stephanie Del Rosso, directed by Sash Bischoff, and
- Flat Sam by Antoinette Nwandu, directed by Danya Taymor.
Both are amazing, fiery new plays that were incredibly fun to work on.
I put up a telephone installation on the sidewalk at FiveMyles, a very cool exhibition space in Crown Heights. You can pick up the phone and hear audio stories of people from the neighborhood with music. It's up September 10 to October 9. Read more (and listen to the audio if you miss the installation) here.
And I've been busy busy busy writing a new play! I shared an excerpt at Judson Memorial Church in September for their monthly curated Bailout Theater night, and I've got a reading of the full play, Everything You're Told, at The Tank in just two weeks! My collaborator, composer Ryan Hopper, and our band will be playing live music. I'm very excited!! Read more and buy tickets here.
P.S. I also had fun last week recording an interview for the BBC with one of the early female graffiti artists in NYC, Lady Pink, truly a cult figure in the 80s hip-hop/subculture scene. Gotta love a badass lady!
