I create immersive events, solo and with a rotating ensemble of artists - dancers, visual and installation artists, videographers, musicians and composers, scent creators, fire artists - to adapt my own novels CHRISTOPHER WILD and the UNDER THE POPPY series, and classic works including DRACULA, WUTHERING HEIGHTS, and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and the Christopher Marlowe plays DOCTOR FAUSTUS and EDWARD II. I’ve directed and produced commissioned events celebrating Hieronymous Bosch’s 500th anniversary, a 30-minute version of Wagner’s “Ring Cycle,” and a robotic take on the Bauhaus.
With “Drunk On Words,” I brought Marlowe into bars in NYC, Detroit, and Chicago, a piece that’s grown into RIVER ST. As a Guest of Honor at StokerCon 2019, I presented the immersive and unnerving “Art of Darkness.” My current work-in-progress is a unique blend of novel and performance event, DARK FACTORY, that BoingBoing calls “unbelievably cool.”
Solo readings, collaborative multi-artist events, commissions and consultations on event creation—let’s talk. Because a story is always a performance.
