is a dramaturg, a liaison between works of art, their contexts, their artists, and their audiences.
I'm a New Jersey-based dramaturg specializing in experiential, communal, and mixed-media production dramaturgy. This philosophy has taken the form of found object mini-museums, themed cocktail menus, field trips, and cigar-rolling workshops, to name a few! In my work with new plays, I draw on six years of experience as a college writing coach, working with folks from all fields and walks of life to develop writing and share ideas through conversation.I'm an alum of Kean University (B.A. Theater and English Literature), the Kennedy Center’s National Dramaturgy Intensive, and apprenticeships at the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey and Premiere Stages. Currently, I'm a graduate student in Labor Relations at Rutgers University, a member of the People’s Theater, a socialist theater collective, a collector of vegetarian recipes, a propagator of plants, and a pur(r?)veyor of cat pictures.
My interests as a dramaturg/theater-maker/human being include...
• The dramaturgy of the theatermaking process
• Non-hierarchical and anti-capitalist theatermaking structures/practices
• Political and street theater
• Yiddish theater
• Labor issues/movements/histories
...and interacting with work, art, and unexpected sources of inspiration that keep me adding on to this list!
The Program is a companion zine, part audience-facing program and part-archive, for productions by the People's Theater.
