Why do you want to write for Rescripted?  I want to write for Rescripted because community matters. I crave for the opportunity to learn, exercise, and grow within an artistic community that engages WITH me, instead of trying to PRESCRIBE to me. 

What are your artistic disciplines? Playwriting, circus performance, essay writing, dramaturgy

What “lenses” do you bring with you when you go to a show? I bring my experiences and training from my artistic disciplines into every show I see (playwright, dramaturg, physical artist). Primarily, however, the lens I most keenly sharpen during a theater experience is whether a space challenges without traumatizing. I watch plays to be transported, not taught. And to commune with my fellow audience members.
