I've been writing for as long as I can remember knowing how to hold a pencil. I started writing stories, both short and long, then moved on to poetry, and found my way to writing for and about theatre. A play is a proposal made to other artists and to their community to create meaning together. Making theatre is a ritual—the ordering of space and time, seeking justice, searching for more expansive meanings in text and gesture.
Most of my work revolves around challenging boundaries -- of culture, of textuality, and of language. I'm interested in the way writing and performance can participate in the formation of national, regional, and personal identities. I'm interested in transformation.
THE WELDERS : a playwright's collective
Welders take separate materials and join them together to make something new. They bring things together. They seek transformation. I’m a Welder because my process as a theatre-maker is co-creative. It’s rooted in relationship. I believe at its core, the artist’s soul is prophetic, tasked with the work of revelation. There is awe in this.
