2018 was been busy and 2019 has been shaping up to be even more so.
Here are some of the things I have been involved in.
I’ll start with The Centurions Project, a community engaged initiative that brings seasoned professionals and young actors together in a timely and topical play by award winning Vancouver playwright Sally Stubbs. The play focuses on youth, sexual violence and the impact of technology. We just completed a residency with Boca Del Lupo to explore the integration of film and video with the live performance. You can read about it here.
In 2019 we are heading to do a more in-depth design residency at the Shadbolt centre in Burnaby BC and then a premiere run at The Evergreen Theatre in Coquitlam.
I also am working on another community engaged art and performance project about Mixed Ancestry Called The Tangled Roots Project. It’s an exploration of Mixed Roots story-telling, art making and Performance. It’s early days so more about that coming soon.
And last but definitely not least
We completed a tour of Sink or Swim written and performed by the fabulous Beverley Elliott with talented musical director Bill Costin, and my favourite projection designer Jordan Lloyd Watkins at the Evergreen Theatre in Coquitlam after successful runs at travelled to New York City where we won the best musical in the United Solo Festival– and in 2019 we will be heading to the Blyth Festival in Ontario.
Right now I am about to hunker down and do some writing and teaching and tinkering with my solo show– but get in touch. Say hi.
