Eating Our Way to Extinction: A Soundpainting of Epic Proportions
(October, 2007-Globesity Festival - Theatre for the New City, NYC)
Commissioned specifically as the closing event for the Festival, Strike Anywhere tapped its natural resources to create a super-sized Soundpainting examining America's over-the-top obsession with over-consumption! While the trumpeter ate close to a dozen hamburgers after playing a blistering trumpet solo, actors riffed on a series of satiric diet commercials and talk show parodies in a theater filled with the smell of bacon.
John Lennon: A Soundpainting (September, 2007-Network of Ensemble Theaters Annual Gathering - Fayette, ME - WOrk-in-Progress Showing)
An improvised composition weaving quotes from interviews, poetry and songs by John Lennon into a colorful multi-media mosaic. John Lennon: A Soundpainting will premiere in NYC in the spring of 2008.
Riverhead (March 5, 2005-Red Bank, NJ)
Commissioned by the Two River Theatre Company in Red Bank, NJ, this fantastical creation story was specially crafted by the ensemble to honor the town and celebrate the the opening of Two Rivers new theater. Presented as part of the New Jersey Theater Alliances statewide event, Family Week.
Safety & Security (November 2004 Galapagos-Brooklyn, NY)
