Why do you want to write for Rescripted? I want to write for Rescripted to show people that our opinions as artists do matter, and that we have the ability to contextualize productions in the canon of greater American theatre because that’s what we’re immersed in everyday.

What are your artistic disciplines? Director, Producer, Dramaturge, Performer, Writer

What “lenses” do you bring with you when you go to a show? Queer, Black, Native, Activist, Musician, Director

Who is your favorite theatre artist and why? Daniel Alexander Jones, his use of Theatrical Jazz aesthetic is eternally inspiring to me, every time I return to study it it becomes more fruitful. He incorporates other artistic disciplines into his directing as well: when we worked together installation artist Kimberlee Koym-Murteira did the Romare Bearden-inspired set design.
