A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
i was 33. i had just left a relationship with the nice man who is a brilliant sculptor with a generous spirit but not a huge intellect. he is the person who told me: "artists marry women in the health professions." said that to me in all sincerity, his big brown eyes unblinking; and in a flash, i…Continue

As I ventured into my first experience of creating, developing and performing my first solo piece I can not deny that the responsibility of "making it work" filled me with complete dread. I had had the initial idea for the piece in the Summer of 2011 and was confident that this was a good concept and moreso something individually my own reflecting aspects of my own personality without appearing narcissistic.
With further development; ideas disgarded and kept.The piece almost…Continue

that's an easy answer: when she finds her throughline.
very happy to have discovered the inciting incident of my story - which gives my central character a throughline + motivation, and my pivotal character/antagonist a reason to be in the story besides looking like a 21st century samurai pimp.

as we all know, art is a lot of hard work. it took me 5 hours to do all the things i needed to shoot short entreactes for my new live-action storyboard TYFTB. there is a character, either fantastical or supernatural TBD, who haunts the hallway in the middle of the night at a mental hospital - the setting of the movie.
i used to be a sculptor. some of my wood figures were so big that i would work on one side all day and i would have to wait…Continue

commitment. the word that came to mind when i started watching this Kool: Dancing in My Mind, Robert Wilson's homage to Japanese dancer and choreographer, Suzushi Hanayagi. it also came to mind what the best people who have taught me all said - when you move, move like you mean it and know why you mean it and where you came from.

some days of grief are worse than others - today is pretty bad: today i finished my movie, Indigo Lady A Performance Art Movie (except for tweaking sound) and Mama is not going to see it. i think she would have liked it - she weirdly seemed to have the gene for "getting" avant…Continue
