A Process of Discovery and Inclusion

I am a multi-disciplinary collaborator who combines conventional theater styles with the themes, language, music and aesthetics of the Hip-Hop generation. I’m a border crosser; a collector of words, sounds and rhythms. I sample; re-mix; cut and paste; layer and collage; listen and re-interpret. My work lives on the cross fader of theater, live music, history and community building to explore new ways of cultural exploration and expression. My projects are living, breathing documents that live entirely new lives once audiences interact with them. My process is built to grow and evolve with collaboration.
