I have been an ensemble member with BackStage Theatre Company since 2004. I’ve performed in their productions of Terra Nova, Medea, Waiting for Lefty, and Skin of Our Teeth. Our tenth season is coming up in 2009 – 2010.
I am one of the founding members of this performance ensemble. In collaboration with Kerensa Peterson, Chloe Johnston, Ira S. Murfin, Seth Bockley, Angie Tillges and Jessica Hudson, I devised a new work: Theoretical Isolation: A Post-Atomic Experiment. Our performance threaded together source material from The Tempest, the Manhattan Project and Paolo Soleri’s urban laboratory, Arcosanti. It was so awesome that several audience members lost their corporeal integrity and spun off into a million pieces, their essential life force mingling with the dry air of the high desert outside of Arizona. Well. Maybe not. But at least they were impressed.
