I have a pet transmedia project that I am dying to produce in spring if I can find the support, but I can't say what it is for fear that a) you'll think I'm nuts or b) it'll get swiped from under my nose! (not that I doubt the group's integrity, but it's such a great idea, IMHO).
I work primarily in theatre and film; a fairly recent project was a play set inside a refrigerator, completely in the dark except for occassional bursts of blinding light. This show was later moved to the New York International Fringe Theatre Festival, where it was produced in low light, with a very minimal set: the entire environment and atmosphere was provided by the sound design.
Currently my enthusiasm is for theatre and film that rely on total darkness and/or limited imagery, in an effort to counteract the numbing effect of our other senses as a result of our visually dominated culture and reintroduce audience to the pleasure of their own imaginations. I am also very interested in site-specific theatre, the tiny audience phenomenon, and a new form I think of as Hi-Ball Theatre.
I'm a theatre artist from New York living in Seattle for the next 6 months or so. I run my own small theatre company in New York where some of my ideas leave my actors a bit nonplussed. I'd love to find kindred spirits @ Transmedia Seattle.
