PHYSICAL PLASTIC is devising a new work in collaboration with visual artist Dasha Sur (Russia) and choreographer Brigette Dunn-Korpela (LA). Our symbiotic development of vocal composition, choreography and sculpture will use security alarms and the ancient Greek "sirens" as points of departure to embody the act of trespassing, ownership of space, and geopolitical boundaries. Development took place this March in residency at The Watermill Center with the support of New Music USA.
TOKYO is a full-length, multi-media theater work mining the sound-image repertoire of Tennessee Williams’ Noh-inspired works The Day on Which a Man Dies and In the Bar of a Tokyo Hotel. Emerging from a re-reading of the works as two chapters of a single night in the characters’ lives, the project unites these separate efforts of the author to reveal the intense personal struggle of the artist-innovator amidst the juxtaposition of East-West philosophy and neurosis around art, love and death.
(Film) Short study for the screenplay Lulu created by Zoe Aja Moore, Amanda Jane Shank and Liz Toonkel, inspired by Frank Wedekind's plays. Installed as part of the project's live performance series in Los Angeles in 2015.
