Gig Length: 45 - 90 minutes
What to Expect
To see visual interpretations of folktales. To be visually entertained. This is NOT a talking head performance. Some audience participation.
I have been directed and taken workshops with some of the most prestigous names in physical theater including Tony Montanaro, Paata Tsikurishvili (Synetic Theater), David Novak and James Donlon. I have performed both nationally and internationally and have been honored to have been chosen for specific peer-voted conferences. My stories are movement based and highly theatrical forms of folktales as well as personal stories. I can create customized programs with 4 months lead time. A typical performance is approximately 45 minutes in length. My performances can incorporate the use of masks and cloth for character changes. I have over 4 hours of material for both children and adults.
