Theatre Maker

September 2019

Had a great summer.  Got a National Performance Network Creation Award to write Antigone at the Border, my adaptation of the Greek classic.  Shout out to the co-commissioners: International Sonoran Desert Alliance, Milagro Theatre, and Su Teatro... AND to the collaborating Phoenix based partners Teatro Bravo and Aliento.  


Current/Upcoming Projects

Also super excited to be getting on stage this fall in the role of ANIBAL DE LA LUNA in José Rivera's Cloud Techtonics, produced at Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre.

I make theatre as healing ritual...

creating liminal spaces, playing with form and physicality to manifest moments of beauty and affect.  Through a poetry of movement and rhythm, a theatricality of imagery and ritual, my work often investigates the infusion of 'the sacred' in performance. My site specific and community based work strives to rewrite the narrative of people and places as a step to co-creating a better reality.

I'm also an educator, actor and musician

with an MFA in directing from The Theatre School at DePaul University and nine years of university teaching experience.

Some theaters I've had the pleasure to work at include Steppenwolf (Chicago), Campo Santo (San Francisco), The Magic (SF), Arizona Theater (Tucson), Borderlands Theater (Tucson), and American Theatre Co (Chicago).

Glad to be working with fellow radical theatre maker Virgina Grise (Barrio Stories , 2016) on this adaptation of the novel by Helena Viramontes. 

What happens to a community, and the people that live there, when a series of four intersecting freeways are built right through the heart of their neighborhood?  More info here
