Transient

In recent years my writing has become meta-theatrical in nature. I’ve asked questions such as “What is theatre”, “What is play”, and “What is the meaning of this art form in the digital age”?  I’ve explored different means of theatrical delivery using podcasts, Skype, and site-specific locations, often with mixed results. Now I look to examine how the live art form of performance and the use of social and new media are converging. I seek to ask the question “What is next for the playwright”, and "What is theater in the new world?" In the process I have looked to collaborate with contemporary artists, musicians, designers, choreographers, and animators. Many of these collaborations have been with Jennilie Brewster, Ashleigh Nankivell, Tim Guthrie, Tom Tenney, and composer James Berry

Take a look at 64, and my chapter on multimedia collaborations in The Handbook of Creative Writing.

In 2015 I was invited by the Columbia University's Digital Storytelling Lab to work on "Sherlock Holmes and The Internet of Things", a collaborative project in 20 cities across the world with writers, game designers, and hackers. You can read about that here. My multimedia crime scene instillation “The 66th Motivation” premiered at Lincoln Center during the 53rd New York Film Festival. I built this with a team of writers, artists, designers, and hackers from Stockholm, Paris, London, and Brooklyn. On Oct. 13th the project will be in London as part of Power to the Pixel: Cross Media Forum, held in association with the 59th BFI London Film Festival. 

In 2016 I launched Re/Play with Wendy Mitchell at SXSW. It has been at the Come Out and Play festival in both New York and San Francisco/
