Rooms Play 2011

In March 2011, I collaborated with The Copycat Theatre and 50+ artists on the 2nd installation of Rooms Play* which took place during Baltimore's 8th Annual Transmodern Festival.

Rooms Play II, while still referencing Joseph Campbell's monomyth and the human digestive system also focused on immigration that year.

For the Apotheosis room, I created a sideways evaluation clinic, 

& upside-down resting room

Rooms Play, 2010

In the winter-spring of 2010,  I collaborated with The Copycat Theatre and numerous artists on a multi-room, multi-performance/installation piece called 'Rooms Play.'  

The audience, instead of watching a linear stage-like performance from a fixed point of view, passed through a labyrinth of about 20 rooms, designed/ installed/ and performed-in by several artists in such a way that a general narrative could develop, yet was a completely unique experience for each viewer.

The layout of 'Rooms Play' followed two general themes:  Joseph's Campbell's monomyth, layered with the course of the human digestive system.

I created a thunderstorming forest, utilizing timed strobe lights, a thunderous audio track, a bridge-keeper - collaborating performer Monica Mirable, and the occasional splash of rain from yours truly behind the scenes.
