As a theatre-maker
I’m striving to understand,
to translate, and to transform
the metaphor of the world
through the world of metaphor
My creative ground zero is process.
Ideally, it begins and ends with presence,
a respect for the wisdom of the body,
for the subconscious
and the collective unconscious--
as catalyst to
provoke our presumptions
and assuage our sorrows.
To be present on either side of the stage
during a performance
is akin to throwing down the gauntlet
to the cell phone, to the computer, to the car—
all things that compartmentalize and isolate us...
if only for ninety minutes.
Following an impulse towards unity.
This is why I make theatre.
