They Never Really Leave

Do those we love never leave us?  Forty-year-old cassette tapes unexpectedly surface. The recorded voices are mine and a long lost college love's.  The phrase "long lost" is not only figurative but literal; that lover vanished in 1983.  She was never seen or heard from again. Until now.

Consistent Paradox - a story about a man with a secret that everybody knows but pretends not to

standingOUTstanding at the 2014 Edinburgh, Scotland Fringe Festival

standingOUTstanding is my eighth World Premiere in four years.  It features a blend of experimental postmodern dance and improvisation focusing on leading edge themes guaranteed to provoke, stimulate, entertain and captivate the audience’s attention.   The performance explores what happens when previously non-convergent parallel lives collide and merge into one.   There is also an examination of a life filled with consistent paradox.
