I hope my work brings people together, centralizes communities, allows individuals to connect, self-identify, or rectify their world; we deserve to know we are not alone, we deserve to be moved, and we deserve to belong to the world.
Assisting Virginia Scott in The Commedia Company, a weekly performance of Commedia in NYC which has been featured in the Gothamist as best thing to do in NYC.
I have been working on "L'Uomo dal fiore in bocca" and "Cecè" for a while, trying to establish a sense of responsible theatre-making. These two pieces have inspired me to explore Pirandello's greater body of work.
Luigi Pirandello began his career as an openly-fascist writer in Italy, famously donating his Nobel Prize to Benito Mussolini. His work seems important even more now than ever in the United States. I see his misguided cruelty as something I must address when producing his work. I have found power in my own translating, casting, and in acknowledging his shortcomings.
