Four writers – including me and the wonderful Paul Witcover, above – took the stage at Q.E.D. in Astoria, for a slate of work that flew with the birds and got deep into the dark murk of politics. I performed “Riverfest,” a brand-new companion piece to CHRISTOPHER WILD . . .
. . . which is available right now for preorder, and about to go to the printers – I’ll be doing launch events in Chicago and Detroit, details TK!
GLITTER KING, my adaptation of Marlowe’s gorgeous and terrifyingly contemporary EDWARD II, is in process for 2018. GLITTER KING is hosted by Grand On River, a performance and gallery space in Detroit: think DJ, live strings, movement artists, installation designer, freedom versus fear in a glitterpunk bar at the end of the world.
Meanwhile, spring means BAUHAUS, nerve’s commissioned project for June 2017: musicians and movement artists and a pair of iron follies to play on. Rachael Ahn Harbert and Marianne Brass, with costume and installation concept renderings, are having fun already.
And so am I, because when the work is really flowing it’s nothing but joy. Even when times are hard, especially when times are hard. Viva fun!
