Resident Artist: “The Power of Silence”

Resident Artist: “The Power of Silence”

Theaterlab, New York City

In April 2013 I was selected as one of the 20 resident artists for a three week marathon on the theme “The Power of Silence” produced by Forwardflux at Theaterlab in New York City.

This was an awesome experience made of fruitful discussion and unexpected discoveries, but most of all of intense collaboration with artists from many disciplines, including visual arts, dance, and even advanced mathematics. Additionally, since I was involved in four projects overall, I enjoyed stepping out of my usual role of director and perform as actor in a couple of them.

  • Cherry Blossoms, an exploration of the pauses between words in Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard. Director.
  • The Tortured One, a one act play by Jason Sofge on “weaponized silence”. Director.
  • Singer, a staged reading inspired by Carson McCuller’s The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Director and actor.
  • Frameables by Dan O’Neil. Actor.

The residency culminated in a 3 hour performance on May 19, 2013 that took over the three spaces at Theaterlab. For the full program click here.
