Theatre is my passion and I access it through direction and choreography. I specialize in developing new works, reinventing revivals, working with limited resources, and am known for a strong conceptual focus that results in a thorough exploration of non-realistic components of a production. I'm interested in theatre's ability to be the catalyst for social change in our society. I look to not only find new content within the boundaries of a play, but also to explore new forms and styles to house that content. I'm a director who believes in the power of a text to provide the inspiration, and in the power of a company of people to find its relevance, immediacy, and context for a specific audience. I'm a choreographer who analyzes the music/lyrics and contextualizes that information into movement and choreography that has a visceral and effective response in audiences.
