To pull out Klytaimestra’s gut-fueled desire for justice/revenge, the Greek and Tribal Acting techniques I used with Nisarah were based on actively connecting her body sections and even her organs to her voice of power.

Kassandra was on stage for much of the play without a word to say to establish her presence. Using techniques I’ve adapted from ancient sources, I coached her to listen with her entire body using breath and unique images as a way to communicate with the audience.
International Group Inspired to
* Direct, design and act in not one, but two scenes. Chosen from the pile of scripts they also wrote in the workshop
* Express their own stories
* Discuss 6 New York Theater productions as models
* Solve problems in moving from a thought to a theatrical living moment
* Know 23 other people in ways deeper than
“that guy who sits across from me in class.”
At the end of a four-day cyber-writing and revision event, 23 new scenes and their writers gather to read what’s landed on their pages. Over the next 6 weeks scenes are cast, directed and performed. Feed-backs, talk-backs, throw-backs ensue. Fordham University. Party to come.
This shows one of the Irish dance sets I adapted as the choreography for The Open Fist Theater Company’s production of Joyce’s “The Dead.” It’s a six-hand jig, which is just that – a dance for six people. Which translates into multitudes of multiples of 6 possible combinations: a choreographer’s dream.
Dress Rehearsal, with Rob Nagle and Cast, The Dead
A beautiful tech shot of James Joyce’s THE DEAD.
Even at this stage much work ahead, before opening
Saturday at Greenway Court Theatre Jan 18 – Feb 22. Finessing moments, tweaking dances.
Great cast and director, Jessica Kubzansky. Dances by Christine Sang
The moving, haunting, beautiful theater that James Joyce’s The Dead evokes will be playing again, mid-January, Los Angeles. Originally directed by Charles Otte, Jessica Kubzansky, of the famed Boston Court, will be recreating the OFTC remounting of this haunting play. I’m so pleased to add my choreography once again to this beautiful piece.
