rabbit: an original tragedy!

I have been in MPLS since the beginning of the month working on another d.i.y. theater production! Rehearsals are going really well -- it is going to be SO GOOD. I am super stoked to take it on tour!

Here is some information:

Eternal Cult presents
RABBIT: An Original Rabbit Tragedy

What does it mean to fail deeply and totally at every goal you’ve ever had? How can we keep going after terrible things happen? Why can’t we just get what we want? With the help of an opera singing Greek chorus, “Rabbit” follows a modern tragic hero, a cottontail rabbit named Jonathan, as he struggles against a run of very bad luck. After he is snatched away from his wife and family by a giant hawk, his odyssey to return home is a near constant struggle against forces both natural and supernatural. Is it fate? Is it a path? Is there meaning? Or is all of it just a bunch of random crappiness raining down upon him? Upon us all?

make space!

I haven't been making much (finished) work on paper for the last couple of months, but I hope to get back to that again sometime soon. I miss making images, but it has also been fun to spend the summer traveling and getting back into performance/other mediums for making things. 

I am so stoked that some of my drawings and paintings were featured on Make Space recently! I met Lynette and Etta at ACRE, and they are both really lovely.

Read the feature on my work HERE.
