what's happening

At the end of September I will be once again visiting the World Festival of Puppetry, in Charleville-Mezieres, France. I performed there in 2006 with Serra Hirsch of Puppet Junction.  Whereas I won't be officially involved in this year's festival I am very anxious to reconnect with my performance contacts, and also meet some important new ones.



I am currently on-site for the next three weeks with the musician Michael Pestel preparing to fabricate his next architectural-sound installation.



In July I finished fabricating an exciting sculpture for the acclaimed fine artist, Peter Coffin.  Living in the woods for four weeks in an un-finished hunting lodge from 1895 and bathing in the lake added to this fascinating experience.



In May 2013, I attended the Biennale Internationale des Arts de la Marionnette in Paris, and then observed the creation of the students final shows at l'Ecole Nationale superieure des Arts de la Marionnette, in Charleville-Mezieres.  There I had the privilege of witnessing Jean-Louis Heckel and Sylvain Maurice direct their respective productions.  I unfortunately had to leave early, but will see the final creations this September at the festival.
