I have five performance projects currently underway, all moving slowly on long arcs and wave paths.
A companion piece to ASTRS (2005). An interstellar radio show with your host, the astro-gardener Augustine C. Rabbit. Grief and boredom. Totally nascent. Headlessness and headlessness. I mean, who knows.
KARL ANDRISSON PARK
A short libretto I wrote in 2015 after spending a week in a park in Seattle with Jennifer Monson. Speculative, slightly dimensionally askew variation of the park. Libretto in landscape tradition. Set for two voices, performed to live microcinema puppet shadow cut-outs. Will also appear in fully recorded movie-style flatness. In-progress showing Saturday July 20 2019 at 33 Hawley St. 7p. Free, short.
THE LYDIAN GALE PARR
is an oratorio-incantation, currently being composed as a piece for six voices by the luminous Alaina Ferris. You can find the draft script on the plays page, under writing. Watch an apartment recording of a portion of Part 5, from January 2019. Hopefully this goes into production including a full recording in 2020.
LONG BRIGHT DAY
A new play with its being in the vicinity of political questions, political silence, political bodies, political promises, but probably not in the way you imagine a play in that vicinity would be like. What should I do with this play? If you have an idea, let me know.
UNTITLED PRAIRIE TRILOGY
is a chamber opera created in collaboration with composer Brendan Connelly, Netta Yerushalmy, and other folks to join as the work continues. Draft script on the "plays" page. To manifest as an LP and accompanying book. The dance is performed in photographs. The thing is mostly about grass.
