I have been an extremely busy beaver this past little while, and yes I have tended to my normal beaver duties, constructing dams and rearing little beavers, but I’ve managed to carve out some time for some artistic endeavors.
The Plastic Bag Store!
I had the opportunity to wiggle my way down to North Carolina, not as a storm chaser mind you (looking at you Florence), but to perform in the ingenious Robin Frohardt’s Plastic Bag Store. A grocery store comprised of, well… plastic. Part gallery, part puppet-show, part film, this hybrid performance was met with great reception at the Carolina Performing Arts Center and stay-tuned because some day in the near future you may walk into a grocery store and find yourself face-to-face with a box of Lucky Shards or some Polluted Sausage.
Robin can explain her work much better and more succinctly than I can… So check her out:
Also, you may not know this about me, but I am constantly making sounds with my mouth. This eventually led me to meet the lovely folks over at GoNoodle who, instead of turning me away for being a blathering buffoon, allowed me to make rhythmic mouth-sounds for their MooseTube video series. We’ve made some great videos together and there are many more in the works. You can catch one of them HERE!
New shows from Wakka Wakka in NYC. WOAH
A workshop with the great AchesonWalsh Studios!
The first-ever creation from RANK MANJANEE at Dixon Place in December!
Assistant Directing on Doug Fitch’s version of Stravinsky’s Petrushka with the Oregon Symphony. That’s happening the first week in November. Tickets and more info here!
Oh! If you’re in the DC area and happen to be listening to the radio you can here me in a new Subway advertisement.
That about wraps it up for now. There’s always more to say but sometimes it’s fun to leave some mysteries. My dam is complete, so I’ll go back to my other beaver duties while I wait for Autumn to decide if it’s going to skip straight to winter.
