Description of Activity

Cycle of five plays, presented with a small group of collaborators (who served as performers, directors, media designers), where I wrote the texts for performance, and served as ritual director, sometimes director, producer, and principle researcher, where I developed a methodology for performance based in Afro-Cuban ritual possession techniques and western theatrical approaches to character. The five plays varied wildly in style and performance practice, but all carried the themes of death and the underworld, lost love, and the search for authenticity in a world that is simultaneously mythic and mundane, and often interrupted (and infused) with pop culture and hypermediation.
