While I wasn’t able to make this year’s ATHE Conference in Boston, I was able to get to the ATME Pre-con to teach a Margolis Method workshop alongside theatre artist and educator Anna Sycamore Demers. It was a treat to share the work with so many wonderful other teaching artists with a passion. One thing about the ATME folks is that they all embody a sense of generosity, fearlessness, and playfulness that is incredibly refreshing.
I also had the opportunity to take many workshops, which was a great chance to exercise some creativity in different and fun ways. Thanks to all who came and shared!

Well it’s certainly been a whirlwind, and the trip’s not over yet! The show went superbly in Minneapolis and now we’re in beautiful Kansas City, MO, with some very amazing and supportive people.
Check out the newest review of the show in the Articles section!
More later, but a huge public thank you to the Illusion Theater of Minneapolis, Byrd Productions, and the Just Off Broadway Theater in Kansas City!
The kickoff to our series of CYCLOPEDIA performances this past weekend went off without a hitch! VERY strong performances on all parts, and I’m constantly amazed and thrilled at the energy and talent in this production. I’m so pleased to be a part of it! Next on the docket is my home state of Minnesota (I love Minneapolis!). More updates on the road, but this promises to be a great tour!
The new Margolis Brown Adaptors production I’m working on, Cyclopedia, is really going to be spectacular. Much to my delight, my role in the production has increased a fair amount from just Sound Technician. I’m now involved vocally in many scenes throughout the show, adding yet another compelling element to them. Rehearsals have been going extremely well, and we’re all terribly excited to mount the show and take it on the road!
We have a showing in Narrowsburg coming up, followed by the tour to Minneapolis, MN, Kansas City, MO, and finally Baltimore, MD. Alas, Spain will have to wait for now, but it sounds as though they’ve offered us an even better opportunity next year. All good things come to those who wait, I suppose!
Meanwhile, fall is quickly painting the Catskills in gorgeous yellows soon to be ambers and auburns. My favorite time of the year!
