…And I’m Founding a Theatre Company.

Theatre Business, Theatrical Process

Are you ready to rumble?

as subtle as

an avalanche. serene. majestic. cataclysmic.

I am helping Liz Hansen and Jon Jon Johnson found Avalanche Theatre Company.

Who is Avalanche?

If you’re a DC fringe goer, you might recall a couple of shows; Sarah Kane’s Crave in the 2011 festival, and Despertar in the 2012 festival.  Having done two years of fringing, Avalanche’s creative team was ready to make the jump to a full fledged company, and brought me on.

Why Avalanche?

The company catchphrases is ‘as subtle as,’ which I find fits my personality.  I’ve always wanted to ‘one day’ have a theatre company, and so, when Jon Jon and Liz asked if I would be interested in co-directing their company, it struck me as an excellent opportunity.

An avalanche striking

How an avalanche strikes.

Why Run Your Own Company?

There are many reasons to run one’s own company, many good, many bad.  Many folks do it so they can select their seasons, which I think is one of the primary (and most legitimate) reasons for founding a theatre company.  It’s a chance for people like me to use all their skill sets at once, rather than work as a token skill set for another company.  For me, it’s a chance to create art in a dynamic, fresh environment with a supportive team.  It’s also a chance to continue developing my theatre admin skills while at the same time getting to flex my creative muscles.

We had our first official meeting as a board yesterday, and we’ve got a slew of exciting plans coming up.  I won’t say what they are just yet, but… you should be excited.  I know I am.

How Do I Find Out More?

A good question, faithful reader, and one that I am prepared to provide links for:

Ecce Trailer Up!

art, Film, Theatre Business

Hello loyal fans,

 

FINALLY!  This is up and running on the youtubes.  You may remember me blogging about it here and here.

 

Let me know your thoughts on the video, and of course, come see Ecce!  It opens this Thursday night at 8:00pm, and I have a feeling it’s going to be pretty great.

 

Again, thanks for reading.

Ecce & The Busiest Week Ever

Theatre Business, Theatrical Process

Hey all,

I know I’ve been gone for like, 2 weeks, but. Whatever. I know we’re cool.  Anyway, I am particularly swamped this week (oy).

Between teaching for ETC, attending (or not attending) an awesome social media class at GMU, editing, and attending rehearsals, I am booked. Solid.

And yet I post.  Will Wonders Never Cease?

No, I’m posting because I’m working on a semi-overdue trailer for Ecce at the Capital Fringe.

So, yeah, I’m in that show.  We open on July 19th at 7pm.  You should get tickets.

Okay, back to editing.
