I write, perform, and direct physical theater and performance art. The work is almost always about the politics of bodies and love. Here are three of my favorite pieces:
Thick and Thin
An autobiographical solo show about what it took to outgrow an eating disorder, a job, and a marriage all at the same time. Developed with Martha Rynberg.
The Wendy + Tinkerbell Trilogy
A series of performance installations about the sexuality of colonialism and its mediated traces. Devised and performed with Heather Warren-Crow. The script for The Wendy House, the first piece in the series, was published in Women’s Studies Quarterly. The third piece, Peter+Tink4Evr, was directed by Khai Thu Nguyen.
Barbies That Matter
A piece of physical theater inspired by queer longing, performativity, and Denise Duhamel’s poems about Barbie. Devised in collaboration with the cast: Dashe Roberts, Lauren Selman, Joanne Stoddard, and Laurent Hautefeuille.
My stage work has been presented by Collaboraction Theater (Chicago), San Francisco Mime Troupe, Torch Theatre (Phoenix), Solo Sundays at Stage Werx (SF), The Marsh Theater (SF), University of California – Santa Cruz, Berkeley Art Museum, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, Arizona State University, and University of California – Berkeley. Over the years I’ve received generous support via artist’s residencies at the San Francisco Mime Troupe, Mary Baldwin University, and the University of San Diego and grants from the Berkeley Stem Cell Center, the Center for the Study of Sexual Cultures, Arizona State University, and UC Berkeley.
