AS220's 95 Empire, Providence, RI, March 2013

"Come in. Be with me. Don’t touch me. is a process-oriented experiment in writing, collaborating, and making theater. I live in a blackbox theater, 95 Empire and make things each day. 

Alone, in a theater in the center of Providence, trying to figure something out, I am offering a space we can inhabit together. The theater, a laboratory for interaction, collaboration and connection. An open process. Hi Providence.

I welcome: inspirational objects to put in the space with me, mixes to listen to, costumes for lend, food and drink. Please come by and hang out.

Come at 9 almost any night and see 45 minutes of exactly what she has made that day. The impetus for this piece is to connect community and art-making process and see what unknown things come out of it.
